SEE IT: ‘Blade Runner 2049’ shorts to fill in gaps before sequel


The wait for 2049 is a little easier after the first “Blade Runner” prequel short.

Three short films will cover the time between 2019, when the 1982 original movie ended, and 2049, when the sequel picks up.

The first, “Nexus Dawn,” takes place in 2036 and introduces Jared Leto’s Niander Wallace, who says he’s created a new line of the replicants that were banned in the first movie.

In front of a group of officials reluctant to allow his creatures to be free, Wallace promises that the Nexus 9 are completely controlled by humans, even demonstrating that one would kill itself before killing him.

“Humanity has only survived this long by crushing Earth to suit its needs,” he says in the short, directed by Luke Scott.

“The stars, our only hope, are hidden behind the lives you will not allow me to create.”

“Blade Runner: 2049” will pick up 30 years after the first movie.

“A new blade runner, LAPD Officer K (Ryan Gosling), unearths a long-buried secret that has the potential to plunge what’s left of society into chaos. K’s discovery leads him on a quest to find Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), a former LAPD blade runner who has been missing for 30 years.”

The movie, which also stars Ana de Armas, Sylvia Hoeks, Robin Wright, Mackenzie Davis, Carla Juri, Lennie James and Dave Bautista, will hit theaters on Oct. 6.
