I always thought that every version of the film would be in HD and I'm really excited that "Dangerous Days" the (3 hour?) documentary is also "being mastered in 1080".
Amazon has even updated the listing and added a pix of the briefcase to the Ultimate Collectors Edition. The price remains the same. It's looking more & more like it's not a mistake, but even if it is Amazon should deliver what they promised.
hey... three and a HALF hours. haha.
this set honestly is just too good to be true. i am the hardest of hardcore blade runner fans. i own two copies of the criterion CAV laserdisc, the REALLY obscure original full-frame domestic cut laserdisc (the only home video release of the domestic cut ever), the remastered 10th anniversary edition VHS international cut tape, the SVHS international cut tape (great pq, btw), both single-disc DVD releases, and a... uh... collector's set i bought on e-bay that had some um... poorly mastered exclusive materials. you know, probably from an eastern distributor or something, i don't know. ahem....
oh, and of course "future noir: the making of blade runner"
the point is, i'm probably insane and i'm as big a fan of this movie as there is. and i honestly can't think of anything they should have included in this release that they didn't, including things i didn't think were possible -- like nearly an hour of deleted scenes (which have never even so much as been presumed to exist!), or an exhaustive documentary about the movie that's twice as long as the movie, or literally every cut ever produced in top-notch quality... or a commentary track by paul m. sammon... the true blade runner scholar. i mean, this is absolute genius!
honestly, it's really just too damned good to be true. it's better than any of us could have asked for.
i just know that jerry perenchio is going to sweep in at the last minute and file an injunction preventing them from releasing it.
