Blade Runner 2049 Short Film Reveals What Happened in 2036 | Collider

The film comes from executive producer Ridley Scott (Blade Runner, Alien, Alien Covenant) and director Denis Villeneuve (Arrival, Prisoners, Sicario).

And Villeneuve is sharing that gift, as he turned to artistic friends to reveal their vision for key story points that have occurred since the first film, which was set in 2019. The first of these (which premiered on Collider), titled 2036: Nexus Dawn, was directed by Luke Scott (Ridley Scott's son) and stars Jared Leto and Benedict Wong. It is called Nexus: 2036.

Regardless of which timeline you want to use, it's clear the events of this short film are shortly before replicant prohibition has been repealed. Wallace comes to prove the law's folly by bringing his own creation: A seemingly obedient replicant that will never rebel, but still feels pain. Until now, we've only seen bits and pieces of Jared Leto's character.

The release of prequel shorts is a clever marketing ploy that will re-immerse fans in the Blade Runner world and gradually increase hype before the release of "2049" on October 6th.

Set thirty years after the events of the first film, "Blade Runner 2049" follows a new blade runner, LAPD Officer K (Gosling), who unearths a long-buried secret that has the potential to plunge what's left of society into chaos. Robin Wright, Sylvia Hoeks, Ana de Armas, Dave Bautista, and Mackenzie Davis also star.

The original film which came out in 1982, ended fairly ambiguously in the year 2017 when Deckard, played by Harrison Ford, fled to Los Angeles with the replicant Rachael (Sean Young).
