The second trailer for Blade Runner 2049 has finally dropped, giving us a closer glimpse at the much anticipated sequel to the 1980s sci-fi classic.

In it we see Ryan Gosling's new Blade Runner Officer K search for and find Harrison Ford's Deckard, Robin Wright's character telling him that if "this gets out, we've bought ourselves a war".

We also learn how Deckard kept himself hidden all these years, as Jared Leto's creepy replicant manufacturer Neander Wallace hunts them down.

Oh, and there's plenty of action too, as Gosling faces off against Dave Bautista and a host of enemies.

Executive producer Ridley Scott recently revealed that the new Blade Runner movie could be the start of a new movie franchise in the ilk of George Lucas's Star Wars.

"I think that, you know what, George has always proved that," he said. "Of course there's always something... and the way he's handled Star Wars has been spectacular."

It's what I've been trying to do to really evolve Alien, because in those days I wasn't into making sequels, but now suddenly you realise, 'Well, that's stupid'.

"I'll use the word 'duh' again, right? 'You'd better get into sequels, duh'. So that's in a way what I've been doing."

Blade Runner 2049, which also stars Ana de Armas and Mackenzie Davis, will hit screens later this year on October 6.
