I have been trying, mostly unsuccessfully, to curb my excitement for the upcoming Blade Runner 2049 movie. This is made considerably more difficult when they go and make short movies like “2036 Nexus Dawn”. It is one of a few short films that Villeneuve commissioned/asked people to make. It is essentially backstory that is happily also marketing. It stars Jared Leto as Niander Wallace and he is suitably creepy. I liked it, so thought I would share.
I wasn’t going to post the Blade Runner 2049 official trailer as it has been out for almost a day and is all over the internet. But then I thought that someone may have missed it and that would be a shame because it looks incredible.
It is directed by Denis Villeneuve, who has proved he can do thoughtful and evocative sci-fi with the superb Arrival (go and watch that if you haven’t seen it yet). Plus Gosling and Ford are generally pretty reliable and I am a sucker for cyberpunk.
Check it out the official trailer. Ideally on a big screen:
