Video: Everything you need to know about Blade Runner

Blade Runner Harrison Ford Ridley Scott

Director Denis Villeneuve's BLADE RUNNER 2049 will be arriving in theatres this weekend, giving fans of Ridley Scott's 1982 sci-fi noir film BLADE RUNNER the sequel some have been waiting thirty-five years to see. If you're not as up on your BLADE RUNNER history as some of those long-time fans are, don't worry - Lance Vlcek is here to help.

In a new "Everything You Need to Know" video, Lance dives into the world of BLADE RUNNER to give some insight on the making of the original film, showing how some of its incredible world-building effects were pulled off. He also goes into the troubles that arose during production that led to Scott's vision being compromised on the way to the big screen - and those troubles are why we've gotten so many different cuts of BLADE RUNNER over the decades.

Inspired by the Philip K. Dick novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, BLADE RUNNER has the following synopsis:

Rick Deckard prowls the streel and microchip jungle of 21st century Los Angeles. He's a "blade runner" stalking genetically made criminal replicants. His assignment: kill them. Their crime: wanting to be human.

If you've never read the book but have wondered how different it is from the movie, Lance has you covered there, too.

I found this video to be quite interesting and informative. I'm not that familiar with behind-the-scenes stories from the making of BLADE RUNNER, and I definitely learned a few things from watching this.

Whether you're new to the world of BLADE RUNNER or even if you are a fan who first saw it in 1982, this video is worth a look:
