Bought this IN STORE at Tesco Hamilton, Leicester.

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 is spectacularly restored and remastered from original elements and scanned at 4K resolution. It contains 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. As Scott himself puts it, "The Final Cut is the product of a process that began in early 2000 and continued off and on through seven years of intense research and meticulous restoration, technical challenges, amazing discoveries and new possibilities. I can now wholeheartedly say that Blade Runner: The Final Cut is my definitive director's cut of the film."

One of the classics.

Good price, but I have it on Blu Ray and it looks much better.

I remember when the boxset before this was the thing to have, wasn't that long ago either... *sniff*

I've got it on a Hard Drive in 1080P - Who Needs Blu-Ray?

Blu-ray for a film made 30 years ago. There's using your noodle.

Think before you type. Try using your 'noodle' and googling 35mm film resolution.

You do realise it's widely regarded as one of the best looking and sounding Blu Rays you can own?

You don't think they've been playing DVD resolution films in the cinema for all these years, do you?

Sorry, my mistake. It's on Sky Modern Greats on Friday 10pm.

BUT...everyone should watch Midnight Run on Wednesday ITV4 9.00pm. It's really good. Robert De Niro in a comedy role as a bail bondsmen. It's very good.

People who want to watch it in HD and don't already have it in 1080P I'd imagine.

Pretty sure it was shot on 70mm.

Special effects were shot in 65mm, film in 70mm.

70mm film (or 65mm film) is a wide high-resolution film gauge: en.wikipedia.org/wik…ilm

Just because HD TV's have only been around recently doesn't mean film makers havn't been filming in HD!!! lol

Gotta laugh that some people think that Blu-Ray HD is actually superior quality to a 35mm let alone a 70mm cinema projector X)

Basically any major movie made in the last 100 years will have been filmed in a higher resolution than Blu-Ray is capable of handling!

Blu-Ray = 1920x1080 pixels
16mm film > 2048x1556 pixels*
35mm film > 4096x2160 pixels*
70mm film = ?!?!

*What the film is typically scanned at when they digitise a movie for production and distribution.
