Blade Runner Behind-the-Scenes

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?

    Still by far the most impressive sc-fi film ever made.

      Well its in my top 5 but I would say most impressive to be is prob 2001.

      I agree, it's always been 1 of my fav's. What I find slightly disturbing, is the new 30th edition will have even more content. Where does it all come from? The video above, was not on the 5 disc edition released a few years back. It was an excellent edition, but it was also promised it was complete. I guess it was only "complete" when it came out. The 30th edition will be my 6th or 7th edition of Blade Runner.

    Is the T-shirt war from the production mentioned in this video? "Yes gov'nor my ass!"

    They should have used that opening music for the actual movie.

    For blade sequel you must running on blades ruinedPease sir.Scott , this sequel at least Wana 2year pre production, Screenwrighter must create masterpiece completely. If film Wana go through my heart once more must be better than original not even equal and this Wana hard work. Atmosphere & Music is two important thing for me. Speciall Effect must be Unseen in any other movie. Act must very tough, Top-Notch. And many other thing Salute You Sir.Scott
