'Blade Runner: The Final Cut' Gets a Cool Trailer for UK Re-Release
It's not a special anniversary for the 1982 sci-fi classic Blade Runner, but that's not stopping the theatrical re-release of the film in the form of Blade Runner: The Final Cut. In case you didn't know, there have been seven versions of the film delivered over the years with the last one being released in 2007. So far, it's only played on the big screen at film festivals in Venice and New York as well as theatrical showings internationally before hitting home video. Now the United Kingdom is getting a theatrical release this spring and a cool, contemporary trailer for the film has just been unveiled. Perfect timing since the sequel was just confirmed with Harrison Ford back as Rick Deckard under the direction of Denis Villeneuve. Watch!
Here's the trailer for Blade Runner: The Final Cut theatrical release in the UK (via BFI):
In celebration of Blade Runner's 25th anniversary in 2007, director Ridley Scott went back into post production to create the long-awaited definitive new version. Blade Runner: The Final Cut contains never-before-seen added/extended scenes, added lines, new and improved special effects, all making up what is called the definitive version of the 1982 sci-fi classic. Harrison Ford, Rutger Hauer, Edward James Olmos, Joanna Cassidy, Sean Young, and Daryl Hannah all star in the film that has influenced sci-fi for decades since. Blade Runner: The Final Cut hits theaters in the UK on April 3rd, but has no US release plans yet.
