New 'Blade Runner 2049' trailer, dissected shot by shot
'Blade Runner 2049' Atari shoutout
In "Blade Runner 2049" it seems like interactive neon holograms are all the rage.
The new Tyrell Corporation?
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.
Replicant in mint condition
When a Replicant is activated, it looks a little too much like a prepackaged action figure.
Jared Leto as a Replicant creator
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."
Replicants are prepackaged with some kind of artificial placenta giving them a newborn look.
'Blade Runner 2049' hints at the 1982 film
K walking through the dense fog is a nice callback to the original "Blade Runner" movie from 1982, which had plenty of scenes just like this one.
Welcome to LAPD headquarters
Just as in the original "Blade Runner" film, this look at the outside of the LAPD (Los Angeles police department) station is daunting.
"We keep order..."
It looks as though Robin Wright plays the captain of the Rep-Detect department of the LAPD, a position which originally was held by Harry Bryant in the original "Blade Runner" film.
Have gun -- will travel
K's weapon of choice looks a lot like the LAPD 2019 Blaster as scene in the original "Blade Runner" film.
K in the rain
In yet another reference to the original "Blade Runner" movie, here's K looking rather worse for wear in the rain.
The hologram advertisements of 2049 are much more advanced than the original "Blade Runner" neon geisha models.
Heading to the noodle bar?
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.
Love, Replicant style
K seems to be falling for Replicant Joi played by Ana de Armas. Apparently, this is a blade runner tradition.
Joi's uncanny resemblance to Sean Young's Replicant character Rachael from the original film will most likely spark speculation among "Blade Runner" fans.
Los Angeles smog is bad in 2049
K parks his spinner in the Los Angeles desert and goes in search for answers.
Female statues greet visitors
While these statues are a new addition to the "Blade Runner" environment, they remind us of the female statues in concept art for Stanley Kubrick's sci-fi film "A.I."
The entrance to a bigger mystery?
Officer K's quest to find Rick Deckard, played by Harrison Ford, a former LAPD Blade Runner who has been missing for 30 years, leads him to this building in the desert.
Watch your step!
Deckard has boobytrapped his home for good reason. You never know who might stop by to say hello with a gun.
Deckard on the alert
"I did your job once. I was good at it," Deckard (Harrison Ford) says while pointing his famous LAPD 2019 Blaster at K.
K arrives with an agenda
"I want to ask you some questions," K tells Deckard.
Deckard is full of secrets
Will Deckard trust K enough to give him the answers he seeks? Here's hoping we find out what happened in the last 30 years since the last time we saw Deckard in action.
The tide is high
This is K's spinner car flying over the ocean, but who is he looking for?
Driving around in the spinner...
Spinner is a nickname for the type of police flying car in both "Blade Runner" and "Blade Runner 2049" that can drive and fly.
Deckard in the snow
This drastic change in weather means Deckard either went somewhere new with K, or his desert home just got a quick lesson in climate change.
Replicants on the run?
Mackenzie Davis and another Replicant (maybe?) walk through the streets of downtown Los Angeles.
Does 6-10-21 mark a special date for Deckard or K? Perhaps it's the gravestone for Deckard's Replicant lover Rachael -- played by Sean Young in the original film.
This looks like where Jared Leto's character holds court.
Replicant or blade runner?
Sylvia Hoeks plays a character who works for Leto. Chances are she's a Replicant as well.
"Bring him to me..."
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?
Shoot to kill
Hoeks' character shoots at K throughout the trailer as she tries to complete her mission.
"They know you're here..."
Deckard keeps watch and warns K they are in danger.
Deckard has a dog?!
While Deckard runs to escape another unwanted visitor, we see a glimpse of his dog.
The spinner isn't safe!
Deckard and K narrowly escape being blown to bits as the spinner car suddenly explodes.
Replicant pleasure model?
Mackenzie Davis looks like Daryl Hannah's character Pris from the original movie -- a Replicant pleasure model who was just as dangerous as beautiful.
Bautista the Replicant?
Dave Bautista plays a yet-to-be named character that could be a Replicant much like Brion James's all brawn and no brains Replicant character Leon Kowalski from the original film.
Burning down the house
When a blade runner like K goes after rogue Replicants, chances are he'll also be burning their homes to the ground as well.
No business like Replicant show business
Much more glamorous than Taffey's Snake Pit Bar from the original "Blade Runner" movie, this nightclub looks more like a high-end Las Vegas showgirl establishment.
Joi as a hologram advert
Joi is not only K's love interest, but also a model seen throughout the trailer.
Doorway to the forest
Could this be a new character or a returning character hanging out in this artificial forest?
Trouble during transport
Hoeks' character and Deckard inside some sort of underwater transport system. But when they're under attack, who will survive?
Don't mess with Deckard!
Deckard gets a few good punches in, but who's he mad at in this nightclub?
This looks like the outside of the underwater transport vehicle that had Deckard inside.
Spinner takes off
This spinner car is flying through Deckard's desert garage, but is he inside or are the police?
Eye see you
Here's another reference to the original "Blade Runner" film, which has a close-up of an eye. Reflective eyes were always a clue if the person on screen was indeed a Replicant.
Joi compliments K
"I always told you, you're special," Joi tells K. Does this mean K might be a Replicant as well?
K is special
"Your story isn't over yet," Joi tells K. "There's still a page left."
Ripped pages have the answers
The trailer ends with K looking at a mysterious book with pages missing. Could this book hold all the clues K needs during his quest?
