Take a look at a new clip released from Blade Runner 2049, the highly anticipated sci-fi sequel from director Denis Villeneuve (Sicario, Arrival).

Ryan Gosling’s LAPD Officer K is seen uncovering a sweatshop with homeless children working on parts for the “colonial ships”, which offer the upper class a grand off-world life. There isn’t too much to go on in the clip below, but it’s clear that K is searching for one child in particular. Lennie James plays the man in charge of the sweatshop. “Bigger than you are trying to shut me down,” he tells K. “Bigger than you, and they were men.”

It’s yet another promising piece that further whets the appetite for the upcoming picture, which also stars Harrison Ford, Jared Leto, Ana de Armas, Robin Wright, Dave Bautista, Sylvia Hoeks, and Mackenzie Davis. In case you missed it, be sure to check out a 2036-set prologue short film directed by Luke Scott (Morgan) right HERE.

Blade Runner 2049 hits Aussie cinemas on October 5 and opens in the U.S. on October 6.
