The first Blade Runner movie set in 2019, told a story of Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford) hunting down four bio-engineered humans or Replicants who had come to earth illegally. The sequel - as the title suggests - is set 30 years later.

To explain the key events in between the timeline, Denis Villeneuve, the director, bring to you a series of three short films. The first is 'Nexus:2036', giving us a brief introduction to the main antagonist Niander Wallace (Jared Leto) and how he sets the story in motion - that will be carried forward in the main film. There are two more shorts on its way.
