Flying Lotus Will Soundtrack a New 'Blade Runner' Animated Short

Adjust Comment Print

One of anime's most prolific directors will contribute his own short film to the Blade Runner universe, adding to Warner Bros.' ongoing mission to bridge the events that occurred in the 30 year gap between Blade Runner and Blade Runner 2049. Watanabe also notes that he wants to pay maximum respect to the original 1982 film, and is trying not to create an imitation, Kotaku reports. And now we have 2048: Nowhere to Run, the second of three shorts, this time showcasing Dave Bautista's replicant character Sapper.

How on earth do you follow a film as iconic and generally fantastic as Ridley Scott's Blade Runner? The project is a prequel for the forthcoming Blade Runner 2049. However, given that the design brief was presumably to produce a series of posters explaining to audiences who's who in the movie, I guess you can call it a job done (if not a job particularly well done).

Blade Runner Black Out 2022 is set to hit Sony Picture Japan's YouTube channel on September 26.

Nerds, rejoice. As the new Blade Runner movie inches closer and closer, we need something to tie us over in the interim.

Doom for Nintendo Switch compared to Sony's PlayStation 4
In addition to the announcement, we also saw some gameplay screenshots of DOOM Nintendo Switch version. Wolfenstein II The New Order will hit the PS4, Xbox One and PC on October 27th.

Villeneuve reteams with frequent cinematographer Roger Deakins for the sci-fi story with Ridley Scott as executive producer; Blade Runner scribe Hampton Fancher and Michael Green penned the screenplay for the sequel.

Over 35 years since Blade Runner came out, its sequel is nearly upon us.

One can't help but wonder if the Wallace in Black Out 2022 is referring to Jared Leto's character, Neander Wallace, in the upcoming Blade Runner 2049.

In the clip, which is directed by Ridley Scott's son Jake Scott, Bautista brings a little girl Graham Greene's 1940 novel The Power and the Glory. "The new Blade Runner is an extension of the first movie a few decades later".
