The first teaser trailer for Blade Runner 2049, the sequel to Blade Runner, was released back in December, with the first full on trailer arriving in May. Now here is another trailer for the much-anticipated sequel, which is due out October 6. It gives subtle hints as to the plot of the movie and further shows the return of Harrison Ford as Rick Deckard, a former police officer/blade runner (a hunter of rogue replicants, or androids) who may or may not be a replicant himself, along with Ryan Gosling as a new blade runner who tracks Deckard down. The film also stars Ana de Armas, Sylvia Hoeks, Robin Wright, Mackenzie Davis, Carla Juri, Lennie James, Dave Bautista, Edward James Olmos, and Jared Leto. Some of them are featured in the trailer, with Leto seemingly someone who makes replicants. Wright and Bautista also get noticeable moments in the trailer. Denis Villeneuve (Prisoners, Sicario, Arrival) directs, with original Blade Runner director Ridley Scott returning as a producer. Watch the new trailer below.

Scott's 1982 science fiction masterpiece Blade Runner wasn't a hit with audiences or critics upon its original release, in part because of changes forced on Scott by the studio, including a clunky voice over and a less ambiguous happy ending. But over the years the film developed a cult following that was cemented in 1992 when Blade Runner: The Director's Cut was released to theaters and now it is regarded as a highly influential masterwork, so much so that we're finally getting a long-in-the-works sequel. Original Blade Runner co-writer Hampton Fancher has also co-written the new film.

Icelandic composer Jóhann Jóhannsson is scoring Blade Runner 2049. Vangelis composed the beloved score for the original.
