Late final month, Blade Runner 2049 director Denis Villeneuve launched a brand new prequel quick that set to ascertain some main occasions between Ridley Scott’s authentic Blade Runner and his sequel. That quick, 2036: Nexus Daybreak, was directed by Luke Scott and centered on Jared Leto’s Niander Wallace displaying off a brand new line of frighteningly obedient androids. Now, Luke Scott is again with one other Blade Runner 2049 prequel, and this one is about Dave Bautista’s Sapper, an enormous Replicant dude who might or might not have a coronary heart of gold.
This one known as 2048: Nowhere To Run, that means that it takes place only a yr earlier than the total film starring Ryan Gosling and Harrison Ford. Not like the Leto quick, this one takes us out into the streets of the Blade Runner world, that are as soon as once more rain-soaked, completely packed, and drowning in neon lights. It’s unclear how a lot of an affect the stuff on this quick may have on Blade Runner 2049, however at the least we get to see Bautista exhibit some performing chops past what he does in Guardians Of The Galaxy.
A 3rd prequel quick needs to be coming ultimately, and Blade Runner 2049 might be in theaters on October 6.
