SAN ANTONIO – Director Ridley Scott's 1982 sci-fi masterpiece "Blade Runner" was a neon-drenched noir-thriller that had more existential philosophizing than laser gun shootouts. 

It was a masterclass in style, tone and pacing, and it has earned its rank among the very best films in American history.

Perhaps most important to its continued longevity as a cult classic, it was a film with more questions than answers.

Its long-awaited sequel, "Blade Runner 2049," directed by Denis Villeneuve and set for release in October, looks to at least match its predecessor's stylish take on a retrofitted future -- and continues to ask what makes humans, well, human.

In the new trailer released Monday, Ryan Gosling's Agent K can be heard telling Harrison Ford, returning to his role as Agent Deckard, "I want to ask you some questions."

For "Blade Runner" fans, this is truly welcome news.
