The "Blade Runner 2049" Trailer Is Here And Our Excitement Can't Be Replicated.

We can't say for sure what androids dream of, but Sci-Fi fans have been dreaming of this moment since '82.

The Ridley Scott classic that gave you unrealistic expectations about the Future (and also your ability to pull off complicated hairstyles) is back!

And the Future is even MORE Future-y.

And the Future is even MORE Future-y.

Based on the universe of Phillip K. Dick's novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep, the original Blade Runner is not only a Sci-Fi staple, but yet another showcase of Harrison Ford's perfect jawline.

Since its release in 1982, Blade Runner has become something of a cult classic, making the sequel Blade Runner 2049 one of the most anticipated films of not only 2017, but of THIS DECADE.

All of that being said, our first full-length look at Blade Runner 2049 is officially here and, not unlike the original, the sequel is a VISUAL FEAST for the eyes.

While still being produced by Ridley Scott, this entry is being directed by Denis Villeneuve, the visionary behind Arrival.

The 2 minute and 14 second trailer manages to showcase an undeniably talented cast, some genuinely gorgeous imagery, and a truly chilling soundtrack.

Storyline-wise, we're trading out one stud muffin for another with dreamboat Ryan Gosling taking up the replicant-hunting mantle from Harrison Ford, playing the role of LAPD Officer K.

While we don't learn too much about Officer K from this trailer, we do know that these events are set 30 years after the events of the original film.

The original film took place in 2019, just 2 years out from our current reality (and yet I'm still waiting on my holograms, Science).

Jared Leto is continuing his creepy character streak as our villain, credited by the name "Neander Wallace", who appears to be creating a "disposable workforce".

Tell me the "Happy Birthday" line doesn't make him sound like Frosty the Snowman from your nightmares.

Officer K discovers a dark secret about this Future world, which leads him on a desperate search to find former replicant hunter and rugged badass, Rick Deckard, who has been missing for 30 years. However, by the looks of this reveal...

... He found him.

*Fangirl screech*

Looks like Deckard's still got it.

Deckard and K will (likely) need to put their handsome heads together to seek out the frightening truth behind this discovery using their joint knowledge of replicant-hunting, bad guy-busting, and brooding looks.

In the end, if this sequel is half as well-written as it is stunning to look at, we're in for a hell of a ride.

Taking a page out of the original's book... GET IT.

Guess we'll all just be waiting until October like...
