Blade Runner 2049 short helps fill in the gap between films

Blade Runner 2049 TV Trailers (video)

The events of 2036: Nexus Dawn reveal one of Wallace's attempts to convince them that his new replicants will not rebel against humans, but will "only obey". Until now, we've only seen bits and pieces of Jared Leto's character.

As we find out in the short, the creation of replicants has been illegal since 2023.

The officials express great concern over the violence and chaos perpetrated by Tyrell-created replicants during and after the original Blade Runner, including the catastrophic "Blackout" of 2022 that severely damaged the global infrastructure.

The short film "Nexus: 2036" takes place in the year 2036 and revolves around Jared Leto's character, Niander Wallace.

What did you think of the Blade Runner 2049 prequel short film?

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.


2025: A new company, Wallace Corp., solves the global food shortage and becomes a massive superpower.

2030: Replicant prohibition is repealed.

In fact, in the days to come will be released 3 short films that will lift the veil on the background of the film.

In the clip, introduced by Villeneuve, the replicant ban is still in effect but the outer colonies appear to be thriving.

A main point of these featurettes is to introduce moviegoers to the legislation that followed the events in the original Blade Runner, which basically prohibits Replicant technology. The short film also features Doctor Strange actor Benedict Wong opposite Leto. It is due out October 6 in the United States.
