"BLADE RUNNER is one of the most important science-fiction movies of the 20th Century, appearing on more 'Top Five' sci-fi lists than any other film. With immeasurable influence on society for its futuristic depiction of a post-apocalyptic, dystopian world, the film perhaps is more powerful and relevant today than when it was made. In celebration of its 25th anniversary, director Ridley Scott (ALIEN, GLADIATOR, THELMA LOUISE and BLACK HAWK DOWN) has gone back into post production to create the long-awaited definitive new version, which has been brilliantly restored and remastered from original elements and scanned at 4K resolution. This version contains never-before-seen added/extended scenes, added lines, new and improved special effects, and an all-new 5.1 Dolby® Digital audio track. With the assistance of Sony's revolutionary CineAlta 4K D-Cinema Projection System [currently the only system in the world to project 4K DCI (Digital Cinema Initiative), Standard Cinema Content], BLADE RUNNER: THE FINAL CUT will be presented in the highest quality format currently available, ensuring that the film will look nothing short of spectacular."
Looks a cracker! Matinees for a change as well.
