Blade Runner dvd Directors Cut: Remastered-- £4.99

For the first time Blade Runner is available with a digitally remastered and restored picture, it's never looked this good on DVD before.

Los Angeles 2019. Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford) is a retired Blade Runner; his job was to track down rogue Replicants, man made machines identical to humans but banned from Earth. Persuaded to come back to work by his ex-boss, Deckard finds himself on the trail of 4 escaped Replicants who have made it back to Earth from a distant planet, his job is to retire them, by any means. Director Ridley Scott's seminal sci-fi classic paints a very dark and grim vision of the future, a world filled with mile high skyscrapers, pollution and overcrowding. With it's stylish design and dreamlike score by composer Vangelis, Blade Runner has attained well deserved cult status since it's release in 1982 and seems to get more popular each year. This version is the 1992 Director's Cut, which found director Scott revisiting the film and tweaking certain elements. Included in these changes are: the removal of Harrison Ford's voice over, the addition of a brief but very important dream sequence and quite a radical change to the ending.

it could be worth bearing in mind that an ultimate edition is coming later in the year, but that could annoy purists anyway, and won't be this cheap

If you mean Philip K. Dick purists, they wouldn't even watch the movie!! :lol: Just read the book! It's sooooooooo different. Harrison Ford doesn't even have a sheep.

Most people wouldn't have even heard of Philip K Dick if it wasn't for Bladerunner. It put him on the map - despite his death before the films release.

Was about to come and post the same :)

After reading the special in Empire this month, i can't wait for it. I'm not really a fan of the film in that sense but going by what was said the ultimate edition will be the only one worth owning.

Deluxe Blade Runner DVD Coming in September, "Final Cut" Due in 2007
Variety reported on the long-awaited DVD release of Blade Runner, the 1982 film based on the Philip K. Dick novel "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep:"
"Warner Home Video will issue a new remastered director's cut of the classic SF movie Blade Runner in September now that it has cleared up rights issues, followed by a theatrical release of a version promised to be truly director Ridley Scott's final cut, Variety reported. Warner's rights to Blade Runner lapsed a year ago, but the studio has since negotiated a long-term license. The restored "director's cut" will debut on home video in September and will remain on sale for only four months, after which time it will be placed on moratorium. Blade Runner: Final Cut will arrive in 2007 for a limited 25th-anniversary theatrical run, followed by a special-edition DVD with the three previous versions offered as alternate viewing. Besides the original theatrical version and director's cut, the expanded international theatrical cut will be included. The set will also contain additional bonus materials."

Me too - I thought I was the only one who missed this :thumbsup: (I have a Directors Cut version of this)

There's a great line in the narration at the end where Rutger dies .....

The new 2007 edition will be the the proper directors cut authorised by Ridley Scott. The "directors cut" out at the moment isn't the real directors cut.

:thumbsup:

[SIZE=2]The Blade Runner film had been tied up in a legal nightmare until very recently, so that’s why nothing happened for the 20 anniversary. [/SIZE]

[SIZE=2][COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]Warner Bros was able to work out a deal for all those involved [/FONT][/COLOR][/SIZE][COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]so yes its definitely going to be released (tentatively Oct 2007) and it going to be a five-disc release and there’s even going to be some re-shoots/new footage.[/FONT][/COLOR]

It's pretty certain, the issue before was the rights for both versions were held by different people.

This DVD is the crappiest of all the possible versions of the film so I'd avoid it.

Ok...there are a lot of 'cuts' out there!
But - anyone found a good deal for the original release? i.e. the one with the chit-chat....I prefer that one.
Were there any remastered versions of this?
#20
I havent seen blade runner at all but if i find it good i shall search out a better version
#21
I wish that they'd stop assuming that everyone wants to pay over the odds for a daft metal briefcase that'll just end up lying around (who has space for all this clutter, I don't), and produce a set that's just the disks for a sensible price.

And they wonder why people resort to Torrenting to see stuff... :whistling:

Definitely holding out for the big briefcase! My favourite film ever...

I can't believe some people prefer the 'voiceover' version though. :? That's not even me being a fan of the film, I just don't get how anyone can think that corny, gumshoe dialogue is good. It sounds like Dick Spanner.

I totally agree. The voiceovers were only done for the american public. They are totally naff and out of context to what was ment to be a dark film.

This country is becoming USA number 2 so I'm not suprised.
