Blade Runner 30th Anniversary Collector’s Edition Available to Pre-Order from 31st August

It took me a few years to really appreciate the quality as well as the influence the film has had on science fiction films since it was made in 1982 , you just have to look at Total Recall remake to see that. Ridley Scott‘s dystopian masterpiece Blade Runner may have been subjected to endless special box sets many not worth it until now. Here in the UK we don’t get may special editions but coming this October Blade Runner 30th Anniversary Collector’s Edition  might be one box set you might want to invest in.

Harrison Ford (Indiana Jones, Star Wars) stars in the 1982 science fiction epic Blade Runner, the story of a group of genetically manufactured ‘replicants’ who are hiding in Los Angeles after a bloody mutiny. To celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the film, an exclusive 3-Disc Blu-ray pack has been produced, which includes a copy of The Final Cut feature and three other versions.

In a post-apocalyptic, dystopian world, police officer Rick Deckard (Ford) is a special police “blade runner” assigned to hunt down and kill the escapees. The film also stars Sean Young as Rachel, Deckard’s replicant lover; Edward James Olmos as Gaff, a mysterious fellow policeman and Daryl Hannah as Pris, a murderous replicant.  The film is one of the most important science fiction films of the 20th Century and dazzled audiences with its intelligent and provocative story line, stunning camera work, futuristic depiction and state-of-the-art special effects.

Three-time Oscar® nominated director Sir Ridley Scott (Gladiator, Thelma & Louise and Black Hawk Down) directed the adaptation of Philip K. Dick’s novel ‘Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?’ The film was also nominated for two Academy Awards® including Best Art Direction and Best Visual Effects.
