The sequel to the classic cyberpunk film Blade Runner released a teaser online to much excitement. Blade Runner 2049 returns Harrison Ford to Ridley Scott's dystopian future and brings in Ryan Gosling. The teaser trailer brought an outpouring of excitement on Twitter. Watch the trailer below and then find out what the internet thought!

Some fans used some clever word play to express their joy.

Many fans felt that Blade Runner is a classic and should not have a sequel, but the teaser got them excited nonetheless.

Even full blown haters were recanting previous statements and found themselves enthralled by the visuals in the trailer.

Speaking of visuals, Blade Runner 2049 reunites director Denis Villeneuve with his Sicario cinematographer Roger Deakins. Twitter is predicting Blade Runner 2049 will be the film to earn Deakins his long snubbed Academy Award win.

With Harrison Ford returning as another of the many iconic film characters he has portrayed, there were a few jokes to be made.

Despite Twitter loving the sequel overall, there was one major gripe. The trailer ruined any thought-provoking ambiguity the original film created by confirming that Deckard can't be a replicant. Of course, there are creative ways this could be explained by writer Hampton Fancher, but we'll have to wait until October 6, 2017 to find out.

Lastly, the main thing people on Twitter are asking (nay, praying) for is that the film be good. Really, really good.
