The Three Pre-Blade Runner 2049 Shorts #cyberpunk

In the lead up to Blade Runner 2049 in 2017, director Denis Villeneuve and studio Warner Bros. did something rather innovative. They commissioned three shorts to be released on the Internet before the film’s theatrical release. These short films were designed to span the period of time between the action of the original Blade Runner (which was set in 2019) and the 2049 date of the sequel.

Here are the three shorts together and in chronological order. Blade Runner Black Out 2022 is an anime directed by Shinichirō Watanabe (director of the cyberpunk anime classic, Cowboy Bebop). Edward James Olmos reprises his role as Gaff in the film.

The second film, Nexus Dawn (2036), was directed by Luke Scott (Ridley Scott’s son). It stars Jared Leto as Blade Runner 2049 character Niander Wallace.

Nowhere to Run (2048) was also directed by Luke Scott, stars Dave Bautista as the Blade Runner 2049 character Sapper Morton, and segues directly into that film.

I love this concept of pre-release shorts, done by various directors, that lay the groundwork for/tease an upcoming film. I’d love to see Hollywood do more of it.
