Atmospheric Blade Runner 2049 trailer shows Harrison Ford and Ryan Gosling crossing paths

Harrison Ford's Rick Deckard is alive but in hiding from what we can gather from the first trailer for the Blade Runner reboot, which features Ryan Gosling's K searching through a dystopian wilderness.

A synopsis leak has given us more clues about the action, while the trailer provides the atmosphere, with a mix of Mad Maxian desert and original steamy Blade Runner LA.

Thirty years after the events of the first film, a new blade runner, LAPD Officer K (Ryan Gosling), unearths a long-buried secret that has the potential to plunge what’s left of society into chaos. K’s discovery leads him on a quest to find Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), a former LAPD blade runner who has been missing for 30 years.

Blade Runner 2049 is being directed by Denis Villeneuve, and following the positive reception of his Arrival, hopes are high.

The script was written by original Blade Runner co-writer Hampton Fancher with Michael Green, who was behind the emotion-charged Wolverine movie Logan as well as Alien: Covenant (which recently wrapped in Sydney).

The first movie was based on Philip K Dick's Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, although it famously deviates from the novel. It will be interesting to see where the new story goes.

Original director Ridley Scott is in charge as executive producer.

Skyfall and No Country for Old Men cinematographer Roger Deakins will be creating the look. The cast also includes Jared Leto, Dave Bautista, Robin Wright, Ana de Armas, Mackenzie Davis, Carla Juri and Barkhad Abdi.

It's due to land in October 2017.

Enjoy the trailer below.
