Flying Lotus revealed yesterday that he is composing the short film's soundtrack.
With just under a month until the release of Blade Runner 2049, director Denis Villeneuve has announced that he's asked three directors to make short prequel films to set up that story-and the first one is out now.
The name of the special edition is a reference to the 1992 re-release of the original film, which featured a significant recut by director Ridley Scott.
IMAX will allow fans to experience more of the action of Blade Runner 2049 than in any other format.
In the clip, which is directed by Ridley Scott's son Jake Scott, Bautista brings a little girl Graham Greene's 1940 novel The Power and the Glory.
Over 35 years since Blade Runner came out, its sequel is nearly upon us. While Blade Runner 2022 doesn't have a release date, Blade Runner 2049 - which features Ryan Gosling and Harrison Ford reprising his role as Rick Deckard - is due October 6. The production of Blade Runner is believed to have cost at least $100 million.
The video was more of a teaser than a full preview, as it only offered the briefest of glimpses at what's coming in Blade Runner: Black Out 2022.
