Ridley Scott’s cyberpunk thriller Blade Runner returns with a sequel that’s set to premiere in October 2017.
More than 30 years has passed since Ridley Scott’s masterpiece made onscreen history. The 1982 classic showed Harrison Ford crushing down android “replicants” indistinguishable to humans, in dystopian Los Angeles.
The 2017 sequel will take place thirty years after the events of the first film. It follows LAPD officer K (Ryan Gosling), a new blade runner, unearthing 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 blade runner who was the protagonist of the first film and who has been missing for 30 years.
The film will also star Jared Leto (Suicide Squad) and Ana de Armas (War Dogs). It’s set to debut on October 17th 2017; expect a full trailer closer to that date.
