“I’m trying to find a way of saying something without saying anything!” Actor Ana de Armas is trying not to give anything away about the much anticipated Blade Runner 2049. Armas plays Joi, a newcomer to the original’s universe of humans and androids sloping around a dystopian Los Angeles of the future.

She can be forgiven for being cautious. Blade Runner is a cultural touchstone, preserved by the U.S Library of Congress as a key part of America’s film heritage, lauded as one of the best sci-fi films of all time. Its sequel, out now, comes freighted with serious expectation.

Run a quick Google search on 2049 and you’ll find endless attempts to break the trailer down frame-by-frame by journalists and fans alike, all trawling for tidbits. But — non-disclosure agreements and a rabid fanbase wanting answers aside — Cuban-born Armas proceeds to chat for a good half an hour about the film. She promises “the same toxic atmosphere” of the original, and that she plays “a very complex character […] we could talk about Joi for days.” There’s a lot of speculation about whether Joi is human, an android “replicant”, or neither. Whoever she is, Armas says that she shares plenty of screen time with Ryan Gosling’s Agent K, who’s on the hunt from Harrison Ford’s iconic Rick Deckard.
