Watch Now: ‘Blade Runner’ Behind-The-Scenes Convention Sizzle Reel From 1982

Ridley Scott‘s sci-fi noir masterpiece Blade Runner (my second favorite film by the way) will be celebrating its 30th anniversary next month, a few weeks after the theatrical debut of Scott’s long-awaited return to tentpole idea-driven science-fiction Prometheus. Now that Scott is currently at work on a sequel to Blade Runner alongside original screenwriter – and the man who first gave the project life back in the late 1970’s – Hampton Fancher and a three-disc Blu-ray collector’s edition set of the original hitting stores later this year (no release date has been set but you can pre-order your copy here), a reappraisal of one of genre cinema’s landmark achievements is in order.

Several months before Blade Runner‘s June 1982 theatrical release the Los Angeles-based company M.K. Productions assembled a short 16mm behind-the-scenes promotional film to be screened at sci-fi, fantasy, and horror conventions across the country to drum up buzz about the much-anticipated movie. You can check out the full 13-minute featurette here below.

Blade Runner Sketchbook

The Blade Runner Sketchbook was first published in June 1982 by Blue Dolphin Enterprises around the time the Ridley Scott-directed futuristic film noir Blade Runner was released in theaters. The book was chock full of production and concept art, including sketches by “visual futurist” Syd Mead and even the director himself. Soon after Blade Runner‘s uneventful theatrical bow (and shortly before the film was resurrected as an influential cult classic), this beautiful tome went out of print. Surviving copies are scarce and the book was never reprinted even after the movie was granted an elaborate 25th anniversary DVD and Blu-ray release.

But an enterprising Blade Runner fan has recently uploaded the complete text and photos of The Blade Runner Sketchbook to Issuu. You can read the book in its entirety here below.
