Adapted from Philip K. Dick’s novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, Ridley Scott’s iconic dystopian classic is unquestionably one of the greatest sci-fi films ever made. The BFI is about to release Blade Runner: The Final Cut and we are lucky enough to be screening it at our spiritual home, The Lexi Cinema, for one night only.

In 1992, Ridley Scott released a popular Director's Cut that removed Deckard's narration, added a dream sequence, and excised a happy ending imposed by the results of test screenings.Given complete artistic freedom to make The Final Cut in 2007, the 25th anniversary of the film’s release, director Ridley Scott created this final, definitive version, fully restored from the original negative.

A blend of science fiction and noir detective fiction, Blade Runner was a box office and critical bust upon its initial exhibition, but its unique postmodern production design became hugely influential within the sci-fi genre, and the film gained a significant cult following that increased its stature. 

Perhaps more than any other film, Scott’s iconic sci-fi classic has gripped audiences and inspired passionate and fierce debate. Harrison Ford is exemplary as the world weary detective hunting down intelligent but murderous replicants amidst a neon-lit, rain-spattered future Los Angeles. Rutger Hauer, Sean Young and Daryl Hannah all give career-defining performances.

"This definitive print should be the last little push that Blade Runner needs to complete its 25-year journey from box office failure to cult favorite to full-blown classic." Peter Hartlaub, San Francisco Chronicle
