2036: Nexus Dawn – Blade Runner 2049 Prequel Short

As explained by director Denis Villeneuve, 2036: Nexus Dawn is a small collection of stories that take place in a time period between the end of the original Blade Runner (2019) and the new Blade Runner (which takes place in 2049). The film is directed by Luke Scott (Yeah, that’s Ridley Scott plugging his son into shit he’s working on again). Enjoy!

Blade Runner 2049

Pretty bleak, no? People who know me personally know that I don’t have a very bright history with Blade Runner. I fell asleep 6 times while trying to watch it (on different occasions of course) and I only appreciated it the 7th time I saw it. While I loved the book, I found the film exceptionally boring. I loved the performance of Rutger Hauer and that’s what’s given me an appreciation for it over time.

Blade Runner 2049 is set to be released in October 2017, and stars Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford, Ana De Armas, MacKenzie Davis, Sylvia Hoeks, Lennie James, Carla Juri, Robin Wright, Dave Bautista and Jared Leto.

The film is produced by Ridley Scott and director Denis Villeneuve. See the synopsis below:

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. K’s discovery leads him on a quest to find Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), a former LAPD blade runner who has been missing for 30 years.
