Thirty years after the events of the first film, a new blade runner, LAPD Officer K (Ryan Gosling), unearths a long-buried secret that has the potential to plunge what’s left of society into chaos. K’s discovery leads him on a quest to find Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), a former LAPD blade runner who has been missing for 30 years.

This will either be a worthy, incredible, epic sequel...
Or the worst mistake Ridley Scott ever made.

Just ahead of its October 27th release date in Japan, Blade Runner 2049 will have an animated prequel short film directed by none other than Cowboy Bebop's own Shinichiro Watanabe.

News of the tie-in hit Japanese news sites early Friday morning. An English translation of the report is below:
Director Shinichiro Watanabe (Cowboy Bebop, Samurai Champloo) is directing an animated short tie-in to the Blade Runner 2049 film, which opens in Japan on October 27. The short is titled "Blade Runner Black Out 2022."

The anime will take place in the year 2022, between the original Blade Runner film, which takes place in 2019, and its sequel Blade Runner 2049. The story will involve a large power outage on the west coast of the United States.

Watanabe is writing the script in addition to directing. Cygames Pictures, the anime studio subsidiary smartphone game publisher Cygames established last year, is producing the animation. Shukou Murase (Halo Legends, Mobile Suit Gundam Wing) is serving as character designer and animation director, and Flying Lotus is composing the music.

The cast includes Kenichirou Matsuda as Iggy, Ichigo Aoba as Trixie, and Makoto Furukawa as Ren.
In addition to the initial news, a short video clip featuring animation tests and character designs was uploaded to YouTube.

I added the Youtube link. I missed this short entirely. And wished I noticed it before seeing the film. It would have gone a long way to understanding some of what was going on.

Here are a few more shorts which set-up the film.

It’s a bizarre season in Hollywood. Almost nothing is “working,” and the studios can’t afford to waste any more money hoping things will turn around. They’re pulling flops from theaters earlier than usual. This weekend, for example, Warner Bros. is putting out a white flag on “Blade Runner” after three tough weeks. They’ve cut the number of theaters showing Denis Villeneuve’s beautiful film by 855. So far, “Blade Runner” has made just $66 million. Audiences have not clamored to it. And now, week by week, Warners will quietly take it away.
According to IMDB, here is the initial money it made:

Opening Weekend
$81,983,908 (Worldwide) (8 October 2017)
AUD 4,528,430 (Australia) (8 October 2017) (498 Screens)
€449,956 (Finland) (8 October 2017) (127 Screens)
ISK 6,276,051 (Iceland) (8 October 2017) (11 Screens)
€1,995,272 (Italy) (8 October 2017) (779 Screens)
€57,371 (Lithuania) (8 October 2017) (139 Screens)
€674,608 (Netherlands) (8 October 2017) (99 Screens)
NZD 830,936 (New Zealand) (8 October 2017) (90 Screens)
$32,753,122 (North America) (8 October 2017) (4,058 Screens)
NOK 4,907,355 (Norway) (8 October 2017) (154 Screens)
€21,713 (Slovenia) (8 October 2017) (20 Screens)
ZAR 2,271,161 (South Africa) (8 October 2017) (89 Screens)
