Watch 2036: NEXUS DAWN the first of three BLADE RUNNER 2049 shorts made to bridge the gap between the events of the 1982 Ridley Scott original and the Denis Villeneuve sequel.
2036: NEXUS DAWN follows Jared Leto’s Niander Wallace, the creator of a new series of more advanced androids, trying to repeal a more than a decade long replicant prohibition.
This is an angel and I made him, says Leto’s Wallace as he presents the Nexus 9 model in front of a reluctant board.
Well, a presentation follows and that bored lady sure feels grateful for it in the end.
2036: NEXUS DAWN is directed by Ridley Scott’s son, Luke Scott.
BLADE RUNNER 2049 hits theaters October 6.
