And here is arguably the most highly-anticipated DVD/HD DVD/Blu-ray release of the year: Blade Runner: The Ultimate Edition. According to an Australian retail site, the five-disc box set will include the new 2007 ‘definitive cut’ of the film, as well as the 1982 theatrical version, the 1982 international theatrical version, the 1992 director’s cut, not to mention the full-length documentary on the making of the film, an entire disc devoted to featurettes and then the super-hard-to-find ‘work print’ version of the film. Again, if this is really going to happen this year, an official studio announcement from Warner Brothers should be en route soon, so we’ll keep you updated as confirmed facts and figures come in.
Murdoc hasn’t made the move to high def yet. Probably at Christmas.
