Ryan Gosling Is A Sad Boy In The ‘Blade Runner 2049’ Trailer
Why is he so upset?
Warner Bros. just dropped a visual and sonic feast in the form of the full-length trailer for Blade Runner 2049. It premiered following a Q&A in Los Angeles, where director Denis Villeneuve was joined by stars Harrison Ford and Ryan Gosling, who did their best to talk about the highly secretive movie without revealing too much. And while they apparently didn’t quite pull it off, the trailer manages to do just that. It reintroduces audiences to the familiar, neon-noir world of Blade Runner while teasing a new storyline.
Blade Runner 2049 is set 30 years after the first movie and follows a brooding Gosling’s character K, an LAPD officer who discovers a secret that leads him on a quest to find Ford’s character Deckard, who’s been MIA since we last saw him in the original Blade Runner. “I want to ask you some questions,” Gosling tells him in one of the trailer’s many tense moments. We get our first look at a very unsettling Jared Leto, who seems to be playing the God-like creator of a new breed of Replicants, the human-like androids that are at the heart of the Blade Runner mythos. And making brief appearances is the rest of the movie’s supporting cast, which includes Robin Wright, Dave Bautista, Ana de Armas, Mackenzie Davis, and Sylvia Hoeks. The trailer ends with disturbed Gosling staring at some torn-out pages of a book. Find out what’s got him so bothered when Blade Runner 2049 hits theaters on October 6.
