Scientists are saying we should hit Blade Runner territory by May.

The corporations in Wall-E were short sighted and misguided but ultimately well intentioned. We're way off track for Wall-E

Technically the Blade Runner universe is the Aliens universe too, so, don't worry, it will get worse.

If I remember right they both have the same company Weyland yutani

Screen capture of DVD bonus feature from Prometheus (2012), a dictated letter by Peter Weyland about Eldon Tyrell, chief executive officer of the Tyrell Corporation

So, Prometheus establishes Tyrell Corporation and Weyland-Yutani as competitors! Neat.

And there's this:

There's also some commentary from Ridley Scott, one of the displayed replicant body designs in 2049 is clearly an Engineer, and I believe a billboard for Weyland in one of the Blade Runners, but I can't find that screenshot so maybe I'm misremembering that one.

Most of it is Easter Egg level stuff but there's enough that it's canon if you want it to be. Or not.

Really, the biggest takeaway I learned from this connection hunt back in the day was that the Blade Runner humanity had multiple colonies on other planets, which was just not something I remembered being a thing from the movies.

The colony thing is in the text into for blade runner, from memory.

Replicants were made to work on the colonies.

Eugenics wars should have started in 2022 by the revised timeline, and were 1992-1996 in the original timeline
