Watch this short film that takes place before Blade Runner 2049

2036--Nexus-Dawn-Jared-Leto-1110pxAs the premiere of Blade Runner 2049 gets closer to debut, film director Denis Villeneuve is introducing three short films that take place before the movie’s time frame set in the year 2,049.

Villeneuve asked several artists to produce three short films that relate to the sequel to Blade Runner, starting with “2036: Nexus Dawn” created by Luke Scott. The short film stars Benedict Wong and Jared Leto, who also stars in Blade Runner 2049.

In Villeneuve’s words, “the short stories dramatize some key events that occurred after 2019 when the first Blade Runner takes place. But before 2049, when my new Blade Runner story begins.”

‘Nexus Dawn’ is set in the year 2036, when Niander Wallace (Jared Leto) introduces his new line of replicants.
