"As we approach the release of the highly anticipated sequel Blade Runner 2049, Warner Bros. is offering fans a tantalizing tease for the movie that's sure to entice even greater interest. We at Collider are happy to exclusively premiere an "in-world" piece that explains what happened in the world of Blade Runner between the first movie, set in 2019, and this sequel, set in 2049. This in-world short film takes place in the year 2036 and revolves around Jared Leto's character, Niander Wallace. In this short, directed by Luke Scott (Morgan), Wallace introduces a new line of "perfected" replicants called the Nexus 9, seeking to get the prohibition on replicants repealed.

You may recall that at Comic-Con this summer, Warner Bros. unveiled a teaser that offered a bullet point rundown of the events that have occurred in the Blade Runner timeline since Ridley Scott's original movie. This "in-world" piece is one of three short films that will debut ahead of Blade Runner 2049, which will further flesh out the Blade Runner universe with even more information. In 2023, government authorities legislated an indefinite "prohibition" on replicant production, as a year prior a massive EMP detonated on the West Coast and is pinned on replicants. So in this Wallace piece, we'll see the beginnings of the new replicants that are created after the prohibition is lifted…"

There are 3 of these short films.
This one is "Replicant dawn".
The next has Dave Bautista's replicant character (a nexus 8) in it and is called "Nowhere to run"

A third one is to be released this week.
