Blade Runner 2049 looks gorgeous in its first full-length trailer, highlighting the influential nature of the 1982 original. Some of those sci-fi cityscapes could easily come from Ghost in the Shell, Hollywood’s latest cyberpunk reboot.

Ryan Gosling stars in the long-awaited sequel, directed by Denis Villeneuve (Arrival). The new trailer introduces us to Reynolds’ role as a cop, embroiled in a mystery that leads him to meet Deckard (Harrison Ford). There’s also a surprising amount of Jared Leto in there, playing a scientist who creates replicants.
