Tell Either Side There’s Not a Wall, You Bought a War: The First Blade Runner 2049 Trailer Maintains Its Mystery

The first trailer for Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner sequel is finally here, and director, Denis Villeneuve has clearly gotten the look and feel of this world down. Deckard’s all in,

and heck, here’s the Bradbury Building where many scenes from the first film were painstakingly shot.

Check it out, and we’ll see what we can parse.

Gorgeous, right? Jared Leto is apparently the Replicant Whisperer, but not in that loving, paternal way that gives anyone a good feeling.

This being Blade Runner, I suppose that’s to be expected.

Too fast for Gaff, so this must be Gosling’s Officer K.

Clearly someone needed to get origami paper from somewhere, though.

Officer K discovers a long buried secret that could potentially destroy humanity (thus, Robin Wright’s wall assertion).

Is it that door in the woods? (I’m hoping it leads to Rutger Hauer’s cameo),

or he’s got something to do with this carving.

I feel certain there’s a connection to Pris with Mackenzie Davis’ apparent doubles …

Is that what Jared Leto is doing? Creating multiples to confuse the Blade Runners?

Hey, we know you!

Aside from those few guesses about what might be happening, the trailer remains mysterious, which is exactly what it should be. Oh, and full of flying things …

Blade Runner 2049 is written by Hampton Fancher and Michael Green, stars Harrison Ford, Ryan Gosling, Edward James Olmos, Jared Leto, Ana de Armas, Sylvia Hoeks, Robin Wright, Mackenzie Davis, Carla Juri, Lennie James, Dave Bautista and David Dastmalchian; it hits theaters October 6th.

    This trailer is perfect for making me want to see the movie without giving away the whole plot. Although, jeeeze Leto, do you HAVE to do a funny voice? He’s exhausting. And hopefully brief.
