Finally!





New Special Editions of Blade Runner on DVD



Warner Bros. will release two new special editions of “Blade Runner” on DVD. Learn more.









Warner Bros. has acquired worldwide rights to Ridley Scott’s “Blade Runner” and plans to release two new editions of the futuristic classic.



First, a restored and remastered DVD version of the 1992 Director’s Cut will debut in September in the U.S. for a special four-month limited release, after which it will be placed on moratorium by WHV.



Later in 2007, to celebrate the film’s 25th anniversary, the studio will unveil “Blade Runner: The Final Cut,” Scott’s definitive new version of his science-fiction masterpiece. The film will be released theatrically in select major U.S. cities, followed by a multi-disc Special Edition DVD release which will also contain three alternate versions of Blade Runner: the Original U.S. Theatrical Cut, the Expanded International Theatrical Cut and the 1992 Director’s Cut. Ground-breaking bonus features will also be included.

Same here, I’ll wait for reviews to see if the workprint version is worth owning or not. The huge case is kinda off-putting and I really couldn’t care less for The Final Cut…

I bought the attache case for the Ultimate Bond Collection and with Blade Runner, I instantly thought the Ultimate edition also, but I might have to think about it. Depends how much cheaper the Collector’s Edition is. But I definitely like the look of the Ultimate Edition.
