More plot details are revealed in the new Blade Runner 2049 trailer.
While previous trailers only previewed the new conflict spearheaded by Jared Leto’s villain, the latest one details how his replicants have the potential to plunge what’s left of society into chaos. One recognizable replicant is none other than Dave Bautista.
“Every leap of civilization was built off the backs of slaves,” says Leto. “Replicants are the future, but I can only make so many. I have the lock, and he has the key.”
The trailer also sees Harrison Ford’s Rick Deckard explaining his experience to Ryan Gosling’s LAPD Officer K: “I covered my tracks, scrambled the records. We were being hunted!”
Thirty years after the events of the first film, a new blade runner, LAPD Officer K (Ryan Gosling), unearths a long-buried secret that has the potential to plunge what’s left of society into chaos. K’s discovery leads him on a quest to find Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), a former LAPD blade runner who has been missing for 30 years.
