In reality, Wallace had no intention of abiding by those rules, and he's already created at least one new Replicant whom he describes as an "angel". A new series of shorts plans to explain some of the important shifts in the mythology of replicants and replicant hunters.

Blade Runner 2049 opens October 6th in the United States and around the world. The original Blade Runner ended ambiguously in 2017 when Deckard fled Los Angeles with the replicant Rachael.

According to a Comic-Con teaser video and the movie's website, in 2022 the United States was crippled by a rolling blackout when a massive EMP detonated on the West Coast and replicants were blamed for it. Wallace first solved world hunger with genetically engineered food in 2025, later buying the Tyrell Corp.in 2028.

A couple of new short TV trailers have been released over the weekend in the form of "Questions & Answers" to whet your appetite ahead of the launch of the highly anticipated Blade Runner 2049 movie.

The first short, directed by Luke Scott (son of Ridley), is called Nexus: 2036 and covers the rise to prominence of Jared Leto's Niander Wallace. Ryan Gosling also stars as an LAPD officer known as K alongside Jared Leto who will reprise his role as Niander.

Blade Runner 20149 is set to hit cinemas on October 6, despite originally being slated for a later release.
