All the details: ‘Blade Runner: The Final Cut’ coming to 4K UHD Special Edition and Blu-Ray Steelbook

You’d be right in thinking that Blade Runner has quite a few re-releases and special editions but this one is a beauty and bang on time for the release of the hugely anticipated Blade Runner 2049 on 6 October.

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment have now announced, whilst celebrating the the 35th anniversary of the sci-fi classic, that Blade Runner: The Final Cut will be released on 4K UHD on September 4th (amzn.to/2x6nx84), 4K UHD Special Edition on September 25th (amzn.to/2x6V0iL) and Blu-ray™ Steelbook on November 13th (amzn.to/2wrg46M).

Directed by Sir Ridley Scott and starring Harrison Ford as Rick Deckard, Blade Runner is widely accepted as one of the most important science-fiction movies of the 20th Century with immeasurable influence on society for its futuristic depiction of a post-apocalyptic, dystopian world. The film has appeared on more ‘Top Five’ sci-fi lists than any other film, and quite right to. Upon it’s original release in 2007, director Sir Ridley Scott had this to say about this version:

“The Final Cut is the product of a process that began in early 2000 and continued off and on through seven years of intense research and meticulous restoration, technical challenges, amazing discoveries and new possibilities. I can now wholeheartedly say that Blade Runner: The Final Cut is my definitive director’s cut of the film.”

Blade Runner: The Final Cut will be available on 4K UHD and features an UHD Blu-ray™ disc with the feature film in 4K with HDR and a Blu-ray™ disc.

You can also own it in 4K UHD Special Edition which includes the 4K UHD Final Cut, four finished versions of the film (including the Original Theatrical Cut, International Theatrical Cut and Director’s Cut), the Workprint Feature Version, Documentary Dangerous Days and an exclusive art book with behind-the-scenes photos, production art, sketches and storyboards. Blade Runner: The Final Cut Steelbook will also be available.
