Rutger Hauer

Ahead of the October 6 release, Warner Bros. has been shedding light on the film's backstory, fleshing out characters such as Jared Leto's Niander Wallace and Dave Bautista's Sapper Morton. The short is directed by Jake Scott (son of Ridley) and focusses on Dave Bautista's (who played Drax in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 earlier this year) Sapper Montan, who is revealed to be replicant.

Blade Runner 2049 stars Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford, Ana de Armas, Jared Leto and Robin Wright.

Hailing from director Shinichiro Watanabe (Cowboy Bebop, Samurai Champloo, Animatrix) comes Blade Runner: Black Out 2022, a new prequel that's going to be animated in the visionary's signature style. Flying Lotus tweeted about the new film last night.

Cygames Pictures also released a really cool video showing samples of some of the artwork and previews of the animation for the film. "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 work that has influenced me the most in my anime profession would be, of course, Blade Runner", said Watanabe in the clip.

We certainly have some mixed feelings around here about the upcoming Blade Runner sequel, Blade Runner 2049.

49% ABV both for added intensity and as a nod to the futuristic period in which Blade Runner 2049 is set. "One is to treat the original Blade Runner with the utmost respect".

And whilst he was more than a little vague on the deets, he did admit that his iteration is a "very different movie" to Ridley Scott's original.

Blade Runner 2022 is out in Japan on September 26.
