Blade Runner, Ridley Scott’s iconic adaption from Philip K Dick’s science-fction novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, will be re-released in cinemas by the BFI on 3 April 2015.
Ahead of next year’s UK-wide opening, a one-day special screening of Blade Runner: The Final Cut will take place in over 80 cinemas on Sunday 14 December 2014 as part of the BFI’s Sci-Fi: Days of Fear and Wonder season, a nationwide celebration of film and television’s original blockbuster genre.
Harrison Ford plays Rick Deckard, a world-weary detective hunting down intelligent but murderous replicants in a neon-lit, rain-spattered future Los Angeles. The film co-stars Rutger Hauer, Sean Young and Daryl.
In 2007 Scott was given complete artistic freedom to make The Final Cut to mark the 25th anniversary of the film’s release. This enabled Scott to create his definitive version of the film, fully restored from the original negative.
