“2036: Nexus Dawn” Sci-Fi Short: In the Blade Runner Universe

Is this a prediction or a warning or both? Or just fun?

This Sci-Fi short bridges a gap between Blade Runner as we know it and the new Blade Runner 2049. The short, set in 2036, introduces the character Niander Wallace. Think of him like a super rich innovator and even more megalomaniacal version of Eldon Tyrell.

We recommend watching this short before the trailers and of course before watching the actual movie.

From executive producer Ridley Scott and director Denis Villeneuve, #BladeRunner2049 stars Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford, Ana De Armas, MacKenzie Davis, Sylvia Hoeks, Lennie James, Carla Juri, Robin Wright, Dave Bautista and Jared Leto.

A question to ask yourself after this short. This was a great short story, full of action, great acting and powerful thoughts. But what does it make you think about this as our future? Should Niander Wallace have read the I, Robot series?

What do you think?
