When it comes to Science Fiction movies Ridley Scott has it in the bag when it comes to one of the best and Blade Runner really is his golden egg. The film is being released in a new 30th Anniversary Collectors Edition and from the Studio we have the details.
Sir Ridley Scott’s (Alien, Hannibal and a three-time Oscar® nominee, Best Director, for Gladiator, Thelma & Louise and Black Hawk Down) Blade Runner, starring Harrison Ford, is one of the most important science-fiction movies of the 20th century. Blade Runner has had immeasurable influence on society, and its futuristic depiction of a post-apocalyptic, dystopian world makes it a film that is perhaps more powerful and relevant today than when it was made. The film, in fact, has appeared on more ‘Top Five’ sci-fi lists than any other film.
In celebration of its 30th anniversary, Warner Home Video (WHV) will end the film’s moratorium with the debut of a beautiful new commemorative 4-Disc Blu-ray™ + DVD Combo Pack. This comprehensive gift set edition includes The Final Cut version of the feature presented on both Blu-ray and DVD, as well as the other four versions: 1992 Director’s Cut, Domestic and International Theatrical versions, and the rare Workprint feature version previously only available in the 25th Anniversary Ultimate Collector’s Edition.
The set also boasts never-before-seen production photos with more than 1,000 newly discovered sketches from the director all presented in hi-definition, a 72-page production art book with printed versions of the newly discovered art, a collectible Spinner car replica from an official concept sketch conceived by Blade Runner’s visual futurist Syd Mead, and collectible motion lenticular card. In addition, included are all 10+ hours of bonus content from the critically acclaimed 2007 Ultimate Collector’s Edition.
