Based on a novel by Philip K. Dick, Blade Runner is a neo-noir look at reality, memory, and mortality set against a dystopian future of Los Angeles. Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford) is a former “blade runner” called out of retirement to hunt and kill four “replicants” led by Roy Batty (Rutger Hauer). These genetically altered humans with superior strength and intellect have returned to earth on a killing spree, determined to meet their maker, Dr. Eldon Tyrell. Deckard’s investigation leads across the glittering heights and disintegrating depths of Ridley Scott’s fantastically imagined metropolis.

In the Director’s Cut, significant changes from the theatrical version include; the removal of Deckard’s voice-over; re-insertion of sequences; and the removal of the studio-imposed happy ending. (35mm presentation)
