Meanwhile, In 2036


2036: Nexus Dawn – a short film by (Ridley’s son) Luke Scott – the first of three such sequel-prequels commissioned by Blade Runner 2049 director Denis Villeneuve and set between the events of Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner and the upcoming Blade Runner 2049. To wit:

This in-world short film takes place in the year 2036 and revolves around Jared Leto’s character, Niander Wallace. In this short, directed by Luke Scott (Morgan), Wallace introduces a new line of “perfected” replicants called the Nexus 9, seeking to get the prohibition on replicants repealed. This no doubt has serious ramifications that will be crucial to the plot of Blade Runner 2049.

    Watched Blade Runner recently for the second time.

    You sci-fi lovers are weird, it’s not great apart from the fight at the end with the two androids, especially the tears in the rain speech.

    Moon is the best sci-fi film I’ve seen.

      What really set Blade Runner apart was the style of it. I agree that it probably hasn’t aged as well as people make out, when I first saw it i was blown away by the depth of the world i was suddenly in. Loved it.

      Moon is outstanding too. (His second film Source Code is also worth a watch)

        Maybe I’m too much of a newcomer to the genre so, it will probably never be my go to genre either but a good movie is a good movie

    Wattched Citizen Kane recently for the second time.

    You mystery drama fans are weird. It’s not great apart from the reveal at the end with the snowmobile, especially the I love roses speech.

    Adams Family Values Is the best mystery drama film I’ve ever seen.
