With a little over a month before its October 6th premiere, AMC Theaters took to Twitter on Thursday morning to share two new posters for Blade Runner 2049, not only highlighting our four main actors (Harrison Ford, Ryan Gosling, Ana de Armas, and Jared Leto) but also adding more fuel to the “Deckard is a replicant” debate with its choice of color usage.

“Thirty years after the events of the first film, a new blade runner, LAPD Officer K (Ryan Gosling), unearths a long-buried secret that has the potential to plunge what’s left of society into chaos.

Directed by Denis Villeneuve, Blade Runner 2049 stars Ford, Gosling, de Armas, Leto and Robin Wright. It’s is scheduled for release on October 6th.
