Blade Runner 5-disc Collector’s Edition
In celebration of its 25th Anniversary, director Ridley Scott has gone back into post production to create the long-awaited definitive new version of Blade Runner. Blade Runner: The Final Cut will contain never-before-seen added/extended scenes, added lines, new and improved special effects, director and filmmaker commentary, an all-new 5.1 Dolby Digital audio track, and is spectacularly restored and remastered from original elements and scanned at 4K resolution, the company says.

Ridley Scott said, “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 included in three DVD editions: a 2-Disc Special Edition ($24.95), a 5-Disc Collector’s Edition packaged in a limited edition Digi-pak ($99.95), and a 5-Disc Ultimate Collector’s Edition ($149.95) in a limited edition “Deckard Briefcase” packaging. HD DVD and Blu-ray versions of Blade Runner: The Final Cut will also be available with an RRP of $34.95.
