It’s official – the new trailer for “Blade Runner 2049” will be released Monday, May 8. To whet fans’ appetites, a trailer tease has been released! Check it out below:
Earlier this week it was announced that fans can join stars Ryan Gosling and Harrison Ford and director Denis Villeneuve for a Facebook Live Q&A on May 8 at 9:00 AM PT. Anyone can join the event at the Facebook Blade Runner 2049 page.
Thirty years after the events of the first film, a new blade runner, LAPD Officer K (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 (Ford), a former LAPD blade runner who has been missing for 30 years.
Villeneuve directs with a screenplay by Hampton Fancher and Michael Green, with a story by Fancher, based on characters from the novel “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?” by Philip K. Dick.
Andrew A. Kosove, Broderick Johnson, Bud Yorkin and Cynthia Yorkin produced. Executive producers include Ridley Scott, Tim Gamble, Frank Giustra, Yale Badick, Val Hill and Bill Carraro.
In addition to Gosling and Ford, Ana de Armas, Sylvia Hoeks, Robin Wright, Mackenzie Davis, Carla Juri, Lennie James, Dave Bautista and Jared Leto also star.
The new trailer for the film will also go before “Alien: Covenant” when that film releases May 19. However, CinemaCon audiences got the first glimpse back in March. It was rumored that a new trailer would be released Monday to coincide with the Live Q&A, but this is the first confirmation of that news.
The film releases in theaters in 3D, 2D and IMAX on Oct. 6.
