A new trailer for " Blade Runner 2049" has dropped over 2 months after the first preview was released. "Good Morning America" debuted the extended look at the long-awaited sequel Monday morning. While the first trailer introduced us to Ryan Gosling's character, LAPD Blade Runner, Officer K, this new clip reveals more about Harrison Ford's character, who says that he and his fellow Blade Runners were being hunted.

The cinematography is just as visually exotic as past previews, but featured more of Johann Johannsson's synthesizer-induced score that pays homage to Vangelis' original score for 1982's Blade Runner.
