Warner Home Entertainment will bring the 30th Anniversary Edition of Blade Runner to Blu-ray on October 2, 2012. Director Ridley Scott’s iconic reimagining of the Philip K. Dick novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep stars Harrison Ford (The Complete Indiana Jones Collection) as Rick Deckard, a disenchanted Blade Runner who hunts replicants – genetically engineered organic robots – in Los Angeles, circa 2019.
As the science-fiction-thriller begins, Deckard receives the assignment to kill four rogue replicants who have returned to Earth after organizing a bloody off-world rebellion. Deckard’s search takes him from the bowels of Los Angeles’ synthetic community to Dr. Eldon Tyrell (Joe Turkel, The Shining), the creator of the replicants; however, the weary Blade Runner finds his resolve tested by both his romantic feelings towards Tyrell’s android secretary Rachel (Sean Young, Ace Ventura: Pet Detective) as well as the savagery of head replicant fugitive Roy Batty (Rutger Hauer, Hobo with a Shotgun).
Written by Hampton Fancher (The Minus Man) and David Webb Peoples (Unforgiven), the film co-stars Edward James Olmos (Battlestar Galactica), M. Emmet Walsh (Blood Simple), Daryl Hannah (Kill Bill), James Hong (Big Trouble in Little China), William Sanderson (Deadwood), Brion James (The Player), and Joanna Cassidy (Ghosts of Mars).
