BLADERUNNER BLACK OUT 2022 - NEW ANIME SHORT


Image: Sony Pictures Japan

It goes without saying that beloved science fiction films have a history of cross-pollinating each other across the decades. Elements from Metropolis ( 1926 ) may be visible in Bladerunner ( 1982 ) and Akira ( 1989 ), for instance. 

Here, we have the final of the three short films commissioned to coincide with Denis Villeneuve's imminent Bladerunner sequel. The director, Shinichiro Watanabe ( most famous for Cowboy Bebop ), purportedly commented that Bladerunner was the film that had the most influence on him, and that it was important to pay respect but not be an imitation. It was inevitable perhaps, that the stunningly-realised futuristic milieu of the original film, imprinted itself on dozens of live-action cinematic releases over the years, as well as on the colourful, animated world of manga. 

Advance word on Villeneuve's film is already resoundingly positive, and may even be a new classic. He will have pulled off an astonishing feat if that indeed is the case. We only have a few more days to find out for ourselves, but until then, here Villeneuve presents a new short to as the final hors d'oeuvres to the main course:

OOPS! IT APPEARS TO HAVE BEEN TAKEN DOWN BY WARNERS. 
OKAY, HERE'S THE TEASER CLIP, COURTESY OF TOKYO POP TV!

BRAND-NEW CELLDWELLER VIDEO DEBUTS TODAY!

With Klayton's other personas grabbing all the limelight lately, ( namely quasi-80s synthrocker Scandroid, and post-90s industrial metaller Circle of Dust ) and both having multiple releases in the last 18 months, it's about time his most famous alter-ego made a comeback. Here, we see Celldweller in an introspective mood, in a cut taken from the forthcoming album OFFWORLD. Released on July 28th, its melancholy textures herald somewhat of a detour from the usual crushing Electro-Metal sound.
