Fans of Blade Runner have been waiting for a continuation of the story since 1982, and in October they'll finally get the chance, with the release of the new Warner Bros’ Blade Runner 2049.
Until the release, fans will have to enjoy the high-octane prologue films, including the latest, called 2048: Nowhere to Run. It plops us down in the middle of the action and features Sapper Morton (Dave Bautista) as an outlaw Replicant in hiding who has to risk everything to save an innocent life in a crime-infested Los Angeles market.
Created by agency 3AM, directed by Luke Scott (Meet Walter) and produced by RSA Films (the same team behind 2036: Nexus Dawn prologue film), 2048: Nowhere to Run was filmed on set during the film’s principal photography.
Set in 2048 Los Angeles, the six-minute short follows the release last month of 2036: Nexus Dawn with Jared Leto, and Blade Runner 2049’s official trailer this summer.
From executive producer Ridley Scott and director Denis Villeneuve, Blade Runner 2049 stars Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford, Ana De Armas, MacKenzie Davis, Sylvia Hoeks, Lennie James, Carla Juri, Robin Wright, Dave Bautista and Jared Leto. It debuts in theaters on October 6th.
