lost in time
A whole lot went down during Rick Deckard’s 30 years in the wilderness…
A blade runner named Deckard flees Los Angeles along with a prototype replicant named Rachael.
The Tyrell Corporation rushes a new line of Nexus 8s into the marketplace in an attempt to keep the company viable. These Nexus 8 replicants have extended lifespans.
An EMP detonates somewhere on the west coast of the US, causing a massive blackout, a disaster with global implications.
Replicant prohibition takes effect. Those that can go into hiding.
At the age of 24, Neander Wallace (Jared Leto) develops genetically modified food technology that helps solve the world’s food shortage post-blackout.
Wallace helps pass legislation repealing replicant prohibition.
Thirty years after Deckard and Rachael’s escape, Los Angeles has changed dramatically. Humans who lack the means to leave for off-world colonies are left behind. Life on Earth has reached its limits. Society is divided between two classes: replicants and humans.
