Joanna Cassidy whom portrayed Zhora in Blade Runner has a treat for us on Youtube.
To all the fans of my work and especially Bladerunner, I have put up on my YouTube Channel the dance from Bladerunner that could have been, and since it is the 30th anniversary of the film, I wanted to acknowledge and celebrate the genius that went into the making of this very special movie.
And I really appreciate any and all help to launch this little piece of creativity that I spent so much time on and the love of this character and movie that has made my life a different place.
I would especially like to thank Paul Sammon for his introduction to the video and a special thanks to Gary Whilloughby friend, artist and creator of Bladezone.
Hollywood Science Fiction author, producer, director and self-proclaimed eclectic Paul M. Sammon joins us for Episode 47. He talks about Ridley Scott, Prometheus, Blade Runner, Dune and the state of science fiction in film today. Join us for a very special 75-minute sit down with someone whose knowledge and insights span from the genre’s stops and starts of the 1970s to today
As you might know, there was a somewhat of a celebration of Blade Runner taking place at Comic-Con in San Diego, as Blade Runner turns 30. The panel which did a Q&A consisted of David Snyder (Art Director / Blade Runner), Paul M. Sammon (Author of Future Noir AKA The Blade Runner Bible) and Charles De Lauzirika (The man behind The Final Cut).
A lot was discussed during the panel, which cut of the movie they preferred, what it was like filming at The Bradbury building, where the props ended up after filming was done and many other things. The filming took 85 days to complete and 35 of those where all night shoots (and in rain I guess) so it’s no surprise that it was a very tough film to shoot.
Among one of the things that was discussed was if there was alot of unseen footage left. If you have (and I hope and think you do) the collectors editions of The Final Cut then you have a mini version of Blade Runner, with never before seen footage and a totally new voice over which I think is amazing (and even thou if it’s a mini version, it still holds up very well). The version included in the collectors edition of The Final Cut is compiled of what they could use (as of voice-over narration and scenes).
There is also the question of a an remake ever would be made, to that Lauzirika answers
I went two years on Prometheus without saying a word. There is an idea at work, but never going to be a remake.
Personally, I would hate to see an remake being made of Blade Runner and Im quite afraid of what a sequel/prequel or anything else remotely related to Blade Runner could be, but if there will be a “Blade Runner 2″ (sequel/prequel or sidequel) I’d like to have one of the original script writers, Sir Ridley Scott and Lauzirika to be involved in the process and then, it can hopefully be a good thing. To get something as magical as the original Blade Runner will be quite difficult (remember that everything was done before the days of computer generated effects, this is also somehting I would like to see being done again.. if the knowledge is still around in Hollywood),
David Snyder had this to say about an remake being done
To me, it was the last analog film made. All the miniatures and things, it was the last science fiction film that will ever be made in that way. Almost feels like you can touch it. I wish I could see it without having any knowledge of the making of it, to realize it as a fan
So, more news about the 30′th Anniversary Edition of Blade Runner which will be released as a Blu-ray/DVD/UltraViolet Digital Copy combo pack on October 23′rd 2012. Much of what’s included comes from massive “The Final Cut” Ultimate Collectors Edition package that was release five years ago but there are some new items included for us die-hard fan’s.
New contents and collectibles:
- A new concept spinner
- A action lenticular will also be included (and from what I’ve heard this will not be the same as in the previous Ultimate Collectors Edition)
- a 72 page digibook with never before seen photos from the sets, sketches made by Ridley Scott and poster art.
- A disc with more than 1ooo photos and more.
The “Dangerous Days” documentury will be included both on DVD & Blu-Ray (So, now it’s finally released in High-Def). The 1982 theatrical & European releases will as before be included, together with the 1992 Directors Cut (branched together on one disc, as before). The workprint will also be included in this 30′th anniversary edition and the same thing goes for all of the other extras that could be found in the Ultimate Collectors Edition.
So, to sum it up. The new items will be the 72 page book, the new concept spinner, “Dangerous Days” documentary on Blu-Ray and the old extras from The Final Cut put together on one disc.
So, what are you waiting for.. You can pre-order this at Amazon.com right away
There will be a lighter 30′th Anniversary Collector’s edition released too (without all of the new collectible items) and the Digibook will only consists of 36 pages. If that’s what you want then you can pre-order that one from Amazon.com as well
I know, I know.. But this time I think it works as it should
The Los Angeles, 2019 Blade Runner Forum is now re-re-openend (and this time, all the old forum posts are available, some of their content as images will however be missing). Let’s hope that the new forum software does what it should (and from what I’ve seen so far, it looks alot more robust then the last piece of forum software I installed).
So, if you have an account why not post something, say hello and in the Presentations forum
