As we reported at SDCC earlier this year, a lot happens between Ridley Scott’s original Blade Runner, and Blade Runner 2049. We were presented with a very clever, exciting timeline of events, and now, to lead up to the film, 3 short films have been created, dramatizing some of these pivotal moments. First up, is Nexus: 2036, which touches upon the EMP blackout that changed the world forever, and the rise of a Mr. Wallace (Jared Leto), who repealed replicant prohibition in the interest of saving what little we have left.

The clip is definitely worth a watch, and was directed by Luke Scott. Blade Runner 2049 hits theatres October 6. via
