Feast your Eyes on Five new Blade Runner 2049 Feaurettes

Yesterday we shared this new Blade Runner 2049 featurette from People Magazine that gave us our best glimpse yet at director Denis Villeneuve's sequel to Ridley Scott's 1982 classic. Now Warner Bros. has gifted us with five new featurettes (culled from the nearly four minute long featurette) that focus on the characters played by Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford and Jared Leto, and also includes a look at Ridley Scott's iconic original and director Denis Villeneuve feelings taking on the sequel.

First, let's revisit the nearly four minute long featurette that gives us our longest, most detail rich look at the upcoming film:

This Denis Villeneuve featurette touches on how thrilled (and awed) he was to take on the sequel to Scott's sci-fi masterpiece:

Ryan Gosling talks about the "living, breathing universe" that the Blade Runner 2049 team created:

Harrison Ford discusses the story, themes and visual elements that were so enthralling about the new film:

Jared Leto, who plays the myserious character Wallace, calls the new film "a testament to the original story": 

And finally, Ridley Scott talks about directing the original film 35 years ago, and how there was more story to tell than the original's two hour runtime allowed:

Here’s the films' synopsis: 

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. His discovery leads him on a quest to find Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), a former blade runner who's been missing for 30 years.

Blade Runner 2049 opens on October 6,
