Latest Trailer for Blade Runner 2049 Hints at the Fate of Humanity
The latest trailer for Denis Villeneuve’s Blade Runner 2049 debuted this morning. Much like the first two trailers for the film, this one gives us the impression that the long-awaited sequel’s story will hew close to the Ridley Scott’s first film…but maybe a much larger scale than before.
The trailer was revealed Monday morning during Good Morning America, sharing a few new details about the cyberpunk thriller. Officer K (Ryan Gosling) goes off to search for Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), who has gone into hiding. “We were being hunted,” he tells K.
“We who?” asks K. A very good freakin’ question! It’s safe to assume that Deckard means he and other replicant hunters were being hunted. An easy enough assumption considering his background, but it has been widely theorized that Deckard may actually be the next evolution for replicants. Maybe he figured it out between then and now?
As the trailer unfolds, it’s heavily suggested that K may be the key to the future of humanity. But will it be its destruction to make room for the replicants or not? The truth, as Robin Wright’s character sternly points out, could spark a war.
Blade Runner 2049 hits theaters on October 6, 2017.
