Blade Runner Comes Out of Retirement

As reported in our Comic-Con coverage here, the incredible 5-disc Blade Runner DVD set is now available for pre-order for release on December 18. Check out the product description:

In celebration of Blade Runner‘s 25th anniversary, director Ridley Scott has gone back into post production to create the long-awaited definitive new version. Blade Runner: The Final Cut, spectacularly restored and remastered from original elements and scanned at 4K resolution, will contain never-before-seen added/extended scenes, added lines, new and improved special effects, director and filmmaker commentary, an all-new 5.1 Dolby® Digital audio track and more. Harrison Ford, Rutger Hauer, Edward James Olmos, Joanna Cassidy, Sean Young, and Daryl Hannah are among some 80 stars, filmmakers and others who participate in the extensive bonus features. Among the bonus material highlights is Dangerous Days, a brand new, three-and-a-half-hour documentary by award-winning DVD producer Charles de Lauzirika, with an extensive look into every aspect of the film: its literary genesis, its challenging production and its controversial legacy. The definitive documentary to accompany the definitive film version.

This is one set that more than a few Star Wars fans will likely want to add to their collection.

    No kidding, this is an essential film in so many ways. Scott was hugely influenced by Star Wars before making Alien, and in turn Blade Runners adult tone and seriousness made Ford think twice about doing Jedi.
    Despite being re-released almost as many times as the trilogy, this is one box set that no true sci-fi fan can be without. Classic film.

  3. I can’t help but feel that once a creative product is put out to the public that it is done. Many people have said that it takes two people to produce a work of art, the artist and someone who keeps them from destroying the art. See that episode of Southpark for further complaining about changing movies that were released twenty five years ago.
