COWBOY BEBOP Director Creating BLADE RUNNER Anime Short Film

Johnnie Walker releases Blade Runner whisky

The film also stars Ana de Armas, Sylvia Hoeks, Robin Wright, Mackenzie Davis, Carla Juri, Lennie James, with Dave Bautista, Edward James Olmos and Jared Leto. What he is referring to in the bottle is a futuristic design inspired by the Johnnie Walker Black Label iconic prop from the original Blade Runner film.

The IMAX release of Blade Runner 2049 will be digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience with proprietary IMAX DMR (Digital Re-mastering) technology.

The short, titled Blade Runner Black Out 2022 is written and directed by Shinichiro Watanabe (Cowboy Bebop).

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. Hopefully subtitles will be ready to go for the debut, by then we'll be primed and ready; Blade Runner 2049 debuts in the United States on October 6.




Sony Pictures Japan released a video with some designs for the film, which you can see below. It's precisely these qualities that got him the Ridley Scott seal-of-approval to continue the Blade Runner story. Watanabe's Blade Runner anime will detail what happened in the 30 years between both films.

"The work that has influenced me the most in my anime profession would be, of course, Blade Runner", Watanabe says in the clip, translated by Kotaku. So it's fitting that Blade Runner would eventually become an anime as well.

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.
