hit theaters. Now, fans can finally sleep in peace because the first official teaser of the long-awaited sequel, Blade Runner 2049
, has finally dropped, and it looks just as dark and dystopian as the 1982 original.

Starring Harrison Ford, who will be returning to play Rick Deckard once again – a blade runner who hunts and kills rogue ‘replicants’ (human-looking androids) – and Ryan Gosling, the sequel takes place 30 years after, where LAPD officer K (Gosling) goes on a mission to track down Deckard, who has now gone MIA after discovering a long-lost secret that has the potential to lead what’s left of the society straight into chaos.
