Shinichiro Watanabe released his short anime set between 2019, the setting of the first Blade Runner movie, and 2049, when the sequel is going to take place. The anime, as the title suggests, is set in 2022 and titled Blade Runner: Blackout 2022. The details in the video are amazing, as well as the whole animation and art. It is a 15-minute video and was made available on YouTube. Sadly, for now it is only available in Japan. We can only hope that it will be soon shared with people worldwide so that we’ll be able to enjoy this amazing video!
The science fiction movie Blade Runner 2049 will start showing in Japanese cinemas on 27 October 2017.
