Blade Runner Anime Short Arriving From Cowboy Bebop Director

Warner Bros

Blade Runner 2049 director Denis Villeneuve has created a new blended whisky to accompany the much-anticipated movie's release. Watanabe also notes that he wants to pay maximum respect to the original 1982 film, and is trying not to create an imitation, Kotaku reports. Today, the iTunes Trailers Twitter page dropped the second one of these short films, 2048: Nowhere to Run, directed by Sir Ridley's son, Luke Scott, on their feed, and it's significantly more palatable.

It's due to be released on 26 September 2017, in anticipation of the October release of Blade Runner 2049.

Shinichiro Watanabe, the director of Cowboy Bebop is set to direct an animated short tied into Blade Runner 2049. Who would you like to see featured or directing them? Flying Lotus released his own debut film as a director earlier this year (17). "I was truly inspired by Villeneuve's artistic vision for Blade Runner 2049 and how it could come to life in this new blend".

The cyclical nature of Blade Runner and the cyberpunk genre in anime is fascinating. That puts the action of the film between the original Blade Runner, which takes place in 2019, and the upcoming sequel, which of course takes place in 2049.

A video posted Thursday by Sony Pictures Japan shows a closer look at the animation and concept art from "Blade Runner Black Out 2022", as well as glimpses at the final film. That's high praise. But, Ridley Scott's sci-fi classic left its imprint all over pop culture, so it's no surprise its reach extends to Japanese animation. "The new Blade Runner is an extension of the first movie a few decades later".
