To celebrate the 35th anniversary of the original 1982 neo-noir science fiction movie, "Blade Runner," Entertainment Weekly has now published a brand new promo video for the classic's upcoming sequel, "Blade Runner 2049." While fans may have already seen some of the scenes from the movie's official announcement trailer, the new featurette actually contains a number of new interesting clips as well as interviews with Harrison Ford, Ryan Gosling, and the film's director Denis Villeneuve.

The original film's director, Ridley Scott, was even showcased in the new trailer talking about the differences and similarities between his original project and the upcoming sequel.

Coming to terms

In the newly published video, "Arrival" director Denis Villeneuve admits that he did feel a lot of pressure when he was initially tasked to direct the sequel. However, the director explained that even before they starting filming, he and Gosling had already come to terms with the fact that the sequel will always be compared to the original.

He also explained that they have accepted the fact that there is a very slim chance for the movie to be successful given that the original was such as "masterpiece." Having said that, the director revealed that it was a good decision to come to terms with the movie's possible fate as it gave him the freedom to fully create something different.

Carving his own path

Villeneuve also revealed in the video that Scott was very accommodating when it came to giving him enough leeway to create his own movie.

Despite being the original creator of the entire universe in "Blade Runner," Scott was apparently very "hands-off" with the sequel, but was still very supportive when the director needed him for advice.

New footage

Aside from the interviews from the director, Gosling, and Ford, the new video showcases a number of brand new scenes that were not included in the original trailer.

Ford's character, Rick Deckard, is shown being flown on a flying vehicle where he is told that he was going "home." Several new environments and unique set pieces were also showcased, which is very reminiscent of the world shown in the original movie. The crew that worked on the sets and its effects even expressed that the upcoming movie was very "technically challenging."

"Blade Runner 2049" is set to be released worldwide on Oct.

6. The film will also feature Jared Leto, Ana de Armas, Dave Bautista, Mackenzie Davis, Sylvia Hoeks, Lennie James, Carla Juri, and Robin Wright in supporting roles.
