Thumbs up Two Blade Runner 30th Anniversary Editions!



Blade Runner: 30th Anniversary Collector's Edition Blu-ray



Blade Runner: 30th Anniversary Digibook Blu-ray

What's the Difference between this release and the 5-Disc release?

-All the Special Features are on a single Blu-ray Disc now Vs 2 DVD discs. They are all still in SD however. There are reports that the Dangerous Days doc in the new set is slightly more compressed than the 5-disc set, and the text is more "jaggier"
- The Workprint cut now features a lossless DTS-MA track, and is encoded with the AVC codec which provides a slight PQ improvement over the previous VC-1 encode.
-The Special features discs includes a 1,000+ Picture Gallery with concept art, stills, etc..

Vote for which Cut you like best

================================================== ============================
Warner will be releasing a 30th Anniversary Collector's Edition for Blade Runner later this year. The set will have everything from the OOP 5-Disc collector's edition, plus a few new extras.

Includes 4 Discs (3 BD's, 1 DVD) in presumably this order
  • Disc 1 (BD): The Final Cut Blu-ray
  • Disc 2 (BD): Theatrical/Director's/International cuts
  • Disc 3 (BD): Bonus content disc w/ Workprint Cut
  • Disc 4 (DVD): The Final Cut DVD

The Bonus disc features "1,000+ new images* which are said to be in HD. Included with this CE is a 72-page Art Production book with never-before-seen Ridley sketches, poster art and photos from the set. It also includes a Spinner model car, and a lenticular film cell that were previously included in the UCE (i.e. briefcase edition)

UPDATE
: There are now 2 editions. The 4 Disc Collector's edition, and a 3-Disc Digibook (aka Blu-ray Book edition).

Cant wait for this release, killer cover

I'll be passing on this one. Perfectly happy with the 2007 release.

100 000 still images would not encourage me to upgrade

If thats the case it maybe worth getting.

Better picture or audio quality and/or "Dangerous Days" in HD would be the only reasons to upgrde to the 30th Anniversary edition which come to mind...

It says Oct. 2nd on the blu-ray page.

Since I missed out on the, now expensive last release, it may work out ok to get this. Last time I bought this was LD, so it would be a nice upgrade.

New pic up on Amazon! It does look like we're getting a new spinner model car than the one that previously came with the briefcase

Unless they remastered it again, which I doubt, the difference from going to VC-1 to AVC would be miniscule at best. This is basically a repackage with a DVD and DC thrown in.

That is bad ass. But I will probably just hold onto my 5-disc set.

Add in some images (??!) & an art book and no one will notice it's a shameless double dip

Feels like they're gonna use all the Blade Runner 2 news floating about to gather some free advertisment for this.

Hope they wised up and put Dangerous Days in HD on there, which I doubt.

Otherwise, new transfer + dts master hd will suffice. I'm a sucker for everything blade runner.
