Get ready for Blade Runner 2049 with this animated short by the creator of cult anime series Cowboy Bebop.
Can’t wait for Denis Villeneuve’s Blade Runner sequel to hit theaters? You’re in luck, because a number of world-building shorts are being released to drum up support for the feature’s box office debut on October 6. The most interesting of which just dropped today: it’s Blade Runing Black Out 2022, an animated story written and directed by Shinichiro Watanabe, the director behind the cult sci-fi anime series Cowboy Bebop. As if that wasn’t enough to get us excited, the short also features a score composed by Flying Lotus (who is a pretty talented director himself) plus music by Miguel Atwood Ferguson and Kuedo. Watch the short here.
