The first teaser trailer for Blade Runner 2049, the sequel to Blade Runner, was released back in December. Now here is a full on trailer for the much-anticipated sequel. It further shows the return of Harrison Ford as Rick Deckard, along with new cast member Ryan Gosling. 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 (aka androids). Denis Villeneuve (Prisoners, Sicario, Arrival) directs, with original Blade Runner director Ridley Scott returning as a producer. The film comes out on October 6. Watch the 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.
