Watch the first ‘Blade Runner 2049’ trailer

Both Harrison Ford and Ryan Gosling star in the trailer

The first trailer for Blade Runner 2049 has been shared online.

In the clip, Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford) comes face-to-face with co-star Ryan Gosling.

The teaser also offers a glimpse of the film’s futuristic, neon-lit L.A. setting, which will be immediately familiar to fans of the original.

The sequel to Ridley Scott’s 1982 classic is being directed by Denis Villeneuve, best known for crime-thriller Prisoners and sci-fi drama Arrival, with Scott taking a backseat as executive producer.

Set 30 years after Blade Runner, the film will centre around an LAPD officer named K (Gosling) in search of Deckard, who has been missing since the events of the first movie.

Gosling and Ford will star alongside Jared Leto (Suicide Squad), Dave Bautista (Guardians of the Galaxy), Robin Wright (House of Cards) and Mackenzie Davis (Halt and Catch Fire).

Icelandic composer Jóhann Jóhannsson, whose Theory of Everything score was nominated for an Academy Award has been chosen to score the film.

Gosling recently revealed that Ford accidentally punched him in the face during filming in an interview with GQ.

“As soon as it happened, the director came up to me and said, ‘Look at it this way—you just got hit by Indiana Jones’,” he recalled.

Blade Runner 2049  will arrive in cinemas on October 6, 2017.
