As we expected with the poster release last week, the full-fledged Blade Runner 2049 trailer has arrived. It certainly gives us a better look at the film than the previous teasers, and I have to say it is visually stunning—it really feels like Blade Runner. Plus, unlike many trailers these days, it doesn’t spoil the mystery. If anything, it deepens it. [click to continue…]

It’s been quite some time since we saw that first Blade Runner 2049 trailer, but we’re guessing that the release of these new posters mean that another glimpse at the film will be coming soon. Let’s hope Ford didn’t just roll out of bed, throw on a t-shirt and jeans and pretend to be Rick Deckard for a few hours. Take a closer look below. [click to continue…]

Not interested in shelling out hundreds and hundreds of dollars for a top-notch Blade Runner blaster replica? How about 1,296 yen (US$11.90)? Apparently, that’s how much the Takagi Type M2019 WaterBlaster will retail for in Japan when it arrives this June. [click to continue…]

The trailer you are about to view is not from Blade Runner 2049. It’s from a short film called Slice of Life from Croatian filmmaker Luka Hrgovic and his friends. [click to continue…]

I want to say something really cool and meaningful about this Tomenosuke Blade Runner Blaster replica, but all I can manage is “OMG BLADE RUNNER BLASTER! WANT!” because Rick Deckard’s blaster has always been one of those Holy Grail prop replicas for me. The more I learn about it, the more amazing I think it is.

I’ve actually had the opportunity to look at one of these up close and personal and I can tell you that, while $900 is pricy, this replica really is a work of art. From the weight to the tiny details, it’s simply amazing.

This is also your last chance to get it. As creator Tomenosuke wrote on his blog, “This is it for the Tomenosuke Blaster PRO Retailer Edition, and there will be no further new or revised molds. In other words, this is the final form we arrived at.”

It comes in both a kit version and the full pro replica and is limited to 50 pieces worldwide.

Head after the break to see more pictures.

Blade Runner has one of those fan bases that will go to extreme lengths to show their love and appreciation for the film. Artist Anders Ramsell is a shining example. He’s abbreviated the film into a 34 minute re-telling. It wasn’t just a matter of editing though; he created 12,597 watercolor paintings by hand to animate and form the film. Each piece of art is approximately 1.5 centimeters by 3 centimeters. I don’t care what he’s seen, even Roy Batty would be impressed by this effort.

Watch the video after the break.

YouTuber Chad Desmond created a small piece of cinematic brilliance by re-cutting and turning Blade Runner into a black and white Film Noir classic.

As a huge fan of the movie, I think this is a love note to both Ridley Scott and his vision. Personally, it makes me wish they’d make a film noir edit just so I can own it.

Check it out after the break—and here’s lookin’ at you, kid.
