2036: Nexus Dawn
28 February 2018 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

2036: Nexus Dawn is part of a set of Blade Runner 2049 shorts that bridge the gap between original Blade Runner and its belated sequel.

Directed by Luke Scott, this short follows Jared Leto's character, Niander Wallace who wants the law prohibiting replicants to be repealed. Wallace has created a new series of advanced replicants, the Nexus 9 which are programmed not to harm humans. He rather forcefully convenes a demonstration but all it really shows that Wallace is barking mad.
