Ryan Gosling Searches For Clues In Blade Runner 2049 Clip

Ryan Gosling is searching for the truth in the latest clip from Blade Runner 2049. The clip features Gosling's Officer K discovering a sweatshop full of child laborers, working on mysterious pieces of electronics.

The clip begins with Officer K approaching a run down building. Inside, he finds a group of children, all sitting on the floor and staring intently at him. They begin to rise after he enters, with one leading him to the back, where even more children sit at tables, finicking with the electronics. 

"The nickel is for the colonial ships," a man (Lennie James) tells Officer K, as he surveys the room. "Closest any of them or any of us is gonna get to that grand life off world. So c'mon now. Which ore do you have in mind? Cause I got all kinds." He whistles, as he finishes his speech, causing the whole room of children to rise. 

He quickly realizes he has bitten off more than he can chew, though, when Officer K pulls out his LAPD badge. "I'm not buying," Officer K tells him. "No, no, no, this is just my game, and I play it fair," the man says. "Bigger than you. Bigger than you have tried to shut me down."

The clip doesn't reveal much about the plot of the film, which will follow Officer K after he unearths a long-buried secret that has the potential to plunge what is left of society into chaos. His discovery leads him on a quest to find Harrison Ford's Rick Deckard, a former LAPD blade runner who has been missing for 30 years. Still, though, the new clip does hint at an intriguing and layered film.

Denis Villeneuve (Arrival) steps behind the camera for the upcoming R-rated sequel, which is based on a script from the original film's Hampton Fancher and Murder on the Orient Express' Michael Green. Jared Leto, Ana de Armas, Robin Wright, Dave Bautista, David Dastmalchian, Mackenzie Davis, Edward James Olmos, Carla Juri, and Barkhad Abdi also star. Blade Runner 2049 hits theaters on Oct. 6; while we wait, see why the movie will be better than you think.
