The third and final short film previewing Blade Runner 2049 has been released. It's titled Blade Runner Black Out 2022 and it's a 15-minute anime directed by Shinichiro Watanabe (Cowboy Bebop, Samurai Champloo) which features music from Flying Lotus.

As the title suggests, the film is set in 2022, just three years after the events of the original Blade Runner set in 2019, and sees the world suffering a global black out following a massive EMP detonation which leads to the prohibition of Replicant production. Watch it above!
