Watch the new trailer for Blade Runner 2049

Franchise king Ridley Scott's neo-noir sci-fi masterpiece about an ex-Blade Runner (a type of badass underground agent) who's called back into service to track down and "retire" humanoid, man-made replicants, made waves when it first released back in 1982, and it looks set to do so again with Blade Runner 2049. "Good Morning America" debuted the extended look at the long-awaited sequel Monday morning. Not only do we see more of the rich, neon-lit world brought to life by famed cinematographer Roger Deakins, we also get more insight into Officer K's (Ryan Gosling) mission, and how it leads him to drag Harrison Ford's former android-hunting police officer Rick Deckard out of hiding. "I had your job once".

Directed by Denis Villeneuve, the film stars Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford, Ana de Armas, Sylvia Hoeks, Robin Wright, Mackenzie Davis, Carla Juri, Lennie James, with Dave Bautista and Jared Leto.

The plot synopsis reads: "Officer K (Ryan Gosling), a new blade runner for the Los Angeles Police Department, unearths a long-buried secret that has the potential to plunge what's left of society into chaos".

By now, we're getting a little spoiled when it comes to Blade Runner 2049.

The search for Deckard is a useful context to fill everyone in on what has happened, or what may have happened, in the 30 years between this film's setting and that of the original Blade Runner.
