Watch: Amazing Behind-the-Scenes 'Blade Runner' Convention Reel
As regular attendees of Comic-Con down in San Diego, we're no stranger to the sizzle reels, featurettes and exclusive footage shown to those who are big enough cinephiles, fanboys, nerds, etc. to head out to a big convention to catch a glimpse at some of the most anticipated film in the future. Last year, a tease of Prometheus tickled our fancy, but now we're avoiding running too many videos on the film so as to not sully the mystery of Ridley Scott's returnt to sci-fi. However, we will highlight a featurette with a much younger Scott taking a dive into the making of Blade Runner in a convention reel from decades ago. Watch below!
Here's the 13-minute behind-the-scenes featurette for Ridley Scott's Blade Runner, found via AICN:
This is one of the coolest archival bits of footage from Blade Runner, and it's something I've never actually seen before. So strange seeing a much younger Ridley Scott and Harrison Ford on the set, especially with all the practical set design stuff, as if the film was made yesterday and had a grindhouse filter thrown on it. If anything, this gets me pretty damn excited for that Blade Runner sequel that's definitely happening now. And for those die-hard fans of the film, there's a new 30th anniversary Blu-Ray/DVD/Digital Copy combo pack coming sometime down the road, with all the good stuff from the previous edition (including every cut of the film) and even some new special features. You can pre-order it right now, too! Great stuff, right?
