Hi, Bryan Here…
Looks like I will have to purchase ‘Blade Runner’ yet again. This will mark the 5th time I believe. I will have owned the VHS, the DVD, The HD-DVD Briefcase, the Blu-ray briefcase, and now this glorious 30th Anniversary Edition. Whew. This blu-ray will be released October 30th, 2012.
The blu-ray briefcase came out back in ’07, and it looked great, but compared to let’s say, The ‘Alien’ quadrilogy’ that was released recently, it’s no comparison. I’m pretty sure, or at least I hope that Warner Bros. is preparing a 4k restoration and a lossless DTS-HD audio mix. It’s going to be in a gift set again, but in my opinion, not as cool as the briefcase. Although it comes with a toy car from the film, booklet, and a couple other goodies.
Bonus features will include:
- Over 10 hours of bonus content from previous releases
- “Final Cut” feature on Blu-ray and DVD
- Three additional feature versions on one disc, seamlessly branched
- All new bonus content disc featuring the existing content from the Ultimate Collector’s Edition
- Photo Gallery with 1,000+ new images
- “Dangerous Days” documentary
- The Work Print feature version
- Over 6 featurettes
- UltraViolet copy
- 72-page Digibook
It’s up for pre-order below.
