'Blade Runner: The Final Cut' Headed for 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray

Posted Tue Jun 27, 2017 at 07:33 AM PDT by

Ridley Scott's 1982 science fiction classic is coming to the 4K format in September.

In an early announcement to retailers, Warner Brothers is working on 'Blade Runner: The Final Cut' for 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray on September 5.

Visually spectacular, intensely action-packed and powerfully prophetic since its debut, Blade Runner returns in Ridley Scott's definitive Final Cut, including extended scenes and never-before-seen special effects. In a signature role as 21st-century detective Rick Deckard, Harrison Ford brings his masculine-yet-vulnerable presence to this stylish noir thriller. In a future of high-tech possibility soured by urban and social decay, Deckard hunts for fugitive, murderous replicates - and is drawn to a mystery woman whose secrets may undermine his soul.

The release will feature 2160p video, a Dolby Atmos soundtrack and supplements include:
