More "Blade Runner: 2049"

Sneak Peek more new footage, plus images from director Denis Villeneuve's R-rated "Blade Runner" sequel, "Blade Runner 2049", set 30 years after the original film, starring Ryan Gosling as a futuristic 'LAPD' officer and Harrison Ford, reprising his role as 'Rick Deckard':

"...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..."

Regarding Ford's age in the sequel, producer Ridley Scott said "Is he too old? Well, he was a 'Nexus-6' so we don't know how long he can live..."

Scott did reveal a scene from "Blade Runner 2049":

"...there’ll be a vast farmland where there are no hedges or anything in sight, and it’s flat like the plains of—where’s the Great Plains in America? 

"Kansas, where you can see for miles. And it’s dirt, but it’s being raked. 

"On the horizon is a combine harvester which is futuristic with klieg lights, ‘cause it’s dawn. The harvester is as big as six houses. In the foreground is a small white clapboard hut with a porch as if it was from 'Grapes of Wrath'. 

"From the right comes a car, coming in about six feet off the ground being chased by a dog.

"And that’s the end of it, I’m not gonna tell you anything else..."
