142 Beautiful Photos Of Blade Runner's Model Cars, Buildings

I'm not kidding with that "beautiful" up there. These aren't even photos, they're scans of slides, and you just would not think they were taken over 30 years ago, during the making of one of the greatest science fiction films of all time.

$900 Blade Runner Gun Looks Totally Worth It

Yes, you read that right. This costs $900, not $90. But whatever. If it means I can walk around muttering "enhance" and shooting at robots, I'll pay it. » 6/19/14 9:21pm 6/19/14 9:21pm

Blade Runner Gives Up, Goes 100% Noir

Blade Runner's already pretty damn noir, from the colour palette to the pacing. So a trailer pitching the movie as an actual 1940's black and white drama just makes sense, ok? » 10/17/13 2:00am 10/17/13 2:00am

I'm A Little Weirded Out By This "Sexy" Blade Runner Video

Joanna Cassidy had a small role in Ridley Scott's classic Blade Runner. She was the mostly-naked robot lady with the snake. Well, according to Cassidy, the role was meant to be a little bigger, with the original script calling for a scene in which she did an exotic "reptile dance." » 1/24/13 3:00am 1/24/13 3:00am

Beijing Is So Smoggy Right Now It Looks Like Blade Runner

How Blade Runner Teaches Bad Japanese Table Manners

Where Tokyo Meets Blade Runner

Phew. All this video game stuff, especially Battlefield 3 stuff, is wearing me out. Time to take a few minutes to chill, relax, watch a soothing movie where footage of modern-day Tokyo is played to the accompaniment of the Blade Runner soundtrack. » 10/26/11 4:30am 10/26/11 4:30am
