Thirty years after the events of the original "Blade Runner" film, Ryan Gosling plays LAPD Officer K, a blade runner who unearths a long-buried secret that could plunge what's left of society into chaos. Here he is getting a tour of a Replicant factory.
We don't officially know the name of Jared Leto's character, but it seems he could be in control of releasing new Replicants into the wild. "Civilization was built off the back of a disposable workforce," Leto says in the trailer. "But I can only make so many."
This shot of K walking through the city streets is reminiscent of the first scenes in the original "Blade Runner" when Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford) walks through downtown Los Angeles before eating dinner at White Dragon Noodle Bar.
Similar to J.F. Sebastian's expansive Bradbury Building, home for broken robots from the original "Blade Runner," this abandoned casino makes for the perfect hideaway. But is this Deckard's home or just another pit stop on K's journey?
Leto's character looks like he could be an older Replicant whose eyes reflect the light just like the Replicants in the original Blade Runner film. Or perhaps he's a human descendant of Dr. Eldon Tyrell. But who does he want -- K or Deckard?
