Blade Runner Short Bridges the Gap Between Original and Sequel

It's been 35 years since the original Blade Runner was in theaters, and the world depicted in that film has become a very different place by the time of Blade Runner 2049.

Blade Runner 2049 is directed by Denis Villeneuve, and along with Leto, stars Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford, Robin Wright, Dave Bautista, Sylvia Hoeks, Ana de Armas, and Mackenzie Davis. Thirty years of history to explain to reveal and it is precisely this that has just begun production. As the title suggests, the film is set in 2036, halfway between the first film and 2049. Nexus Dawn, a new short film directed by Ridley Scott's son Luke Scott, answers at least part of that question. It is called Nexus: 2036.

The short officially introduces Jared Leto's Niander Wallace, as he makes a personal request to repeal the anti-Replicant laws.

Blade Runner 2049 will be released October 6. In fact, these shorts bridges that gap between the two films. But while the new class of replicants can think and feel like any other, they're also very much under Wallace's thrall, and he has no qualms with asking them to do some pretty messed-up things. However, this short gives us more information about Leto's character: Niander Wallace.

The court also said the amount included $6.4 million to sponsor the equestrian career of Choi's daughter. Twice convicted of tax evasion and bribery, the elder Lee never spent any time in prison.

We assume this storyline serves as filler to answer for where all the new replicants in the sequel come from.

Serving as a prequel, the five-minute video takes place 13 years (2036) before Blade Runner 2049 and takes place in Los Angeles.

The film stars Ryan Gosling as LAPD Officer K, who touches on a mystery that leads him to seek out the missing Deckard (Ford) three decades after his disappearance.
