blade-runner-the-final-cut-4k-blu-rayRidley Scott’s Blade Runner (1982) has been released on disc to an almost endless number of iterations including a Director’s Cut, Ultimate and Complete Collector’s Editions, 30th Anniversary Edition, various imports, and lastly “The Final Cut.” But it’s not over.

In anticipation of Blade Runner 2049 this October, The Final Cut will release in 4k resolution for the first time on September 5th with enhanced color depth via High Dynamic Range (HDR). Surely, this is the best you’ll ever see Blade Runner at home (although some Laserdisc faithfuls might argue that point).

On Ultra HD Blu-ray, the definitive sci-fi masterpiece is presented in 2160p at 2.40:1 (16.9) widescreen aspect ratio, with a soundtrack playable in Dolby Atmos (backed by Dolby TrueHD).

Extra bonus material is the same included with Blade Runner The Final Cut on Blu-ray, however, the original movie trailer has been remastered in 4k. Other bonus material includes deleted and alternate scenes, commentary, introduction by Director Ridley Scott, and a lineup of production featurettes.

The Final Cut also includes a Digital Copy redeemable with UltraViolet (unfortunately not iTunes). What we’re not sure of yet is if the code will apply to a 4k UHD copy as well, which might possibly redeem with UltraViolet on Vudu.
