FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 1 : Popcorn Taxi in association with the Astor Theatre and Warner Home Video invite you to join us for the cinematic event of the year, a digital high definition (HD) screening of BLADE RUNNER: THE FINAL CUT, Director Ridley Scott's definitive vision for his signature film, updated, restored and presented like you've never seen it before!

 

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 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, and like you've never seen it before!

If you're a fan, then this is your chance to fall in love with BLADE RUNNER all over again, and FINALLY experience the film, as it was meant to be seen, for the very first time!

 

BLADE RUNNER: THE FINAL CUT will screen exclusively in this format on the cinema screen for seven Melbourne sessions only.  The film will be available to own on DVD, HD DVD and Blu-ray  from 19th December 2007 in three spectacular editions, restored and remastered with 5.1 Audio, new and deleted scenes, special effects and more!
