The film gods have conspired and made this film event happen. Denis Villeneuve, director of Arrival, has teamed up with Ridley Scott, director of the original Blade Runner film, to create a proper sequel titled Blade Runner 2049. In it, an LAPD officer (played by Ryan Gosling) uncovers a secret that can potentially spiral an already disrupted society into sheer chaos.
A new trailer just dropped, featuring more footage that shows an ominous Jared Leto as the film’s main baddie and an elder Harisson Ford, who first appeared in the original Blade Runner film. Watch the trailer here:
Blade Runner 2049 is slated for a wide release in October. An exact Philippine release date is yet to be posted.
