Warner has very recently released a trailer of the latest definitive version of one of the most popular sci-fi movies in history: “Blade Runner”. To celebrate the 35th anniversary of the sci-fi classic, Blade Runner: The Final Cut will be released on Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack, and will arrive just a month before the release of its sequel, “Blade Runner 2049”.
The remaster of Ridley Scott’s masterpiece will feature not only 4k UHD & HDR visuals but also come with the deep audio detail of Dolby Atmos sound integration. The popular science fiction title of the 80s has never looked this way and even long-time fans who’ve watched and rewatched the movie many times over the decades will be seeing it with a level of sharpness never before possible for this iconic science fiction film. The trailer reveals a touch of this, with some of the most emblematic moments of Blade Runner, mostly action scenes with the main character, Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford) and the replicants.
You can glimpse a sample of how great the futuristic dystopian world of Blade Runner looks in this glorious 4K trailer, and for the sake of appreciating its impressive sharpness, we seriously recommend watching it from a 4K UHD TV or on your 4K PC monitor if you have one:
