Happy 30th Birthday Ridley Scott’s “Blade Runner”
Today marks the 30th anniversary of one of the greatest sci - fi films ever to be released. As we all know it’s a miracle that the picture was ever made. So as a tribute to it’s big birthday i am posting an unreleased cover concept design that was thrown into my reject folder, plenty of those in there !! to be release one day for all to see.
Shot on the burbank lot of Warner Bros. Sir Scott’s first feature made in the U.S. was a tough one for him to complete. Endless night shoots, unhappy actors and film crew, but the final product is a work of art, a testament to hard work and vision.
So tonight i encourage you all to make some popcorn and pop the film into your dvd players and witness the ultimate Ridley Scott masterpiece in it’s many versions, my personal favorite is the original director’s cut. You can also watch the great making of documentary “Dangerous Days”
and let us all thank Ridley Scott the Guv’nor for his film
