New Blade Runner 2049 IMAX Promo Immerses You in the Future

Posted September 17, 2017

Shukou Murase (Halo Legends, Mobile Suit Gundam Wing) is serving as character designer and animation director, and Flying Lotus is composing the music. And now we have 2048: Nowhere to Run, the second of three shorts, this time showcasing Dave Bautista's replicant character Sapper.

It seems Replicants are at the center of controversy again in a new animated short called "Blade Runner Black Out 2022".

"Blade Runner Black Out 2022" will be released via the Sony Pictures Japan YouTube channel on September 26. Sony Pictures Japan has uploaded a sneak peek of the short. And (depending on who you ask) it's either been too long a wait, or it should never have seen the light of day.

Written by Hampton Fancher and Michael Green and directed by Denis Villeneuve (Arrival), Blade Runner 2049 stars Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford, Ana de Armas, Robin Wright, Jared Leto, Barkhad Abdi, Lennie James, Mackenzie Davis and Sylvia Hoeks.

Finally, BerganKDV Wealth Management LLC lifted its holdings in shares of Oracle Corporation by 2.3% in the second quarter . The stock of Lloyds Banking Group PLC (ADR) (NYSE:LYG) earned "Neutral" rating by Credit Suisse on Tuesday, November 29.

As you can surmise from the title, the short film will bridge the gap between the original film's 2019 setting and the 30 years that have passed before the upcoming sequel.

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.

The teaser video shows behind-the-scenes footage of artists and animators working on the film. As a result, Villeneuve brought in Ridley's son, Luke Scott, to create two of these shorts. The production of Blade Runner is believed to have cost at least $100 million.

Blade Runner Black Out 2022 is slated to start streaming in Japan on October 27.
