From the Manufacturer
Science Fiction at Its Finest
Considered to be the top sci-fi thriller of all time, Blade Runner is now available in this incomparable 30th Anniversary Collector’s Edition. Blade Runner tells the story of Rick Deckard, a futuristic LAPD cop who has gone into retirement. As a member of the Blade Runner unit, his specialty was hunting down and eliminating artificially made humans. So when four of these replicants escape an intergalactic colony and head for Earth, Deckard is forced back to work to terminate them. Directed by Ridley Scott and starring Harrison Ford as Deckard, Blade Runner is a must-have in every film library.
The Burmese python handled by character Zhora in the film was actress Joanna Cassidy’s real-life pet (named Darling).
Ridley Scott’s first cut of the film was four hours long.
To create the 'shining eye' effect, the film used what is known as the Schüfftan process, in which light is bounced off a specially made mirror into the actor’s eyes.
Rutger Hauer improvised the now-famous line 'All those moments will be lost in time'.
There are only 90 special effects shots in the entire film.

Blade Runner first and foremost, is probably the greatest film ever made, from beginning to end and in all of its variations. A bold statement when the film doesn't even rank in the top 10 in the American Film Institute or on IMDb. Spots #97 and #104 respectively (ahem). But as these kind of lists are subjective and truly under the control of mere mortals and their own strange whims, and I take no offense that so many so-called aficionados have over-looked this film for so long. Roger Ebert slammed Ridley Scott and the film during the first theatrical release by stating that `Scott cared more about the lush environment of the film than he did of the story', which as we all know - and even Ebert now, in hindsight, has stated that he was unkind and grossly unfair to both Scott and the film.Read more ›
Following this edition, there will be another entitled, "Ridley Scott's Blade Runner: The Final Cut," to be released in early 2007 to mark the 25th Annversary of the movie, which will include newly restored scenes and will be Scott's final word on the film. Then later in 2007, there will be the "Ultimate Blade Runner" which will contain all 4 versions of the film, the original U.S. theatrical cut, the expanded international theatrical cut, the 1992 Director's Cut and the 2007 Final Cut, all fully restored and in anamorphic transfers plus tonnes of extras. In addition, Blade Runner will also be released simultaneously on both Blu-ray and HD-DVD formats.
Buy this with your eyes open. It is recommended only if you're a completist or have only passing interest in the film. This edition will have a limited run of just 4 months before it is withdrawn prior to the arrival of the next edition.
