Check out the article over at Blade Runner Sequel is going to happen
Hang on, sci-fi fans: the rumors of a sequel to Blade Runner are true. Ridley Scott, the director of the visionary 1982 film, is "in talks" with Hampton Fancher, one of the two original screenwriters, to develop a sequel, according to a press release from Alcon Entertainment.....
Ridley Scott’s futuristic tale, ‘Blade Runner’ has been voted as the greatest sci-fi film of all time in a new poll.
The film, starring Harrison Ford as android hunter Rick Deckard, triumphed after beating the ever-popular Star Wars in the poll for Total Film magazine.
The film, which will celebrate its 30th anniversary next year, had struggled initially at the box office but went on to be viewed as a classic.
“Once seen and heard, so many scenes from Blade Runner burn into your brain forever. It’s sci-fi at its bleakest and most brilliant,” the Sydney Morning Herald quoted Jamie Graham, deputy editor of Total Film, as saying.
The top 10 sci-fi films are:
1. Blade Runner (1982)
2. Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back (1980)
3. 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)
4. Alien (1979)
5. Star Wars (1977)
6. ET: The Extra Terrestrial (1982)
7. Aliens (1986)
8. Inception (2010)
9. The Matrix (1999)
10. The Terminator (1984).
Nearly three decades after Philip K. Dick’s Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? sparked Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner movie, the novel has inspired a comic book prequel that explores Earth’s first wave of droid hunters.
Titled Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? Dust to Dust, the $4 comic book by I Zombie writer Chris Roberson and 48 Stron artist Robert Adler lands May 26.
Roberson says the comic, offered in four variant covers (including the Trevor Hairsine art pictured above left), draws on a major theme running through Dick’s 1968 sci-fi classic. “There are a number of references to World War Terminus and the radioactive dust responsible for killing off nearly all animal life and rendering humans sterile,” he told Wired.com in an e-mail.
“Our story takes place in the immediate aftermath of that war as the populace comes to grips with the virtual extinction of animal life,” he said. “Meanwhile, the off-world colonies lure more and more people away, and androids originally intended for the battlefield are being repurposed to serve as the colonial workforce.”
To get a free sneak peek at the story, fans can eyeball an eight-page digital preview on an iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch. The Dust to Dust app, devised by comiXology and Boom Studios, includes a retail locator bundled with a preorder feature for those who want to purchase physical copies.
In 1982, you ran around your living room with a makeshift blaster, aping the mannerisms of Harrison Ford. The film Blade Runner grabbed hold of your imagination, and your life was changed forever.
Now, you can take your childhood dream of humanoid hunting to the next level. The very gun that you imitated with what seemed like a large stick is going to be auctioned by Profiles in History on April 30 and May 1, 2009.
The humanoid replica killer Blade Runner gun is expected to gather somewhere between $100K and $150K in this auction, especially as we're talking about a unique piece. Only one of its kind was made for Harrison Ford a.k.a Rick Deckard, and the gun is even more special as it is, indeed, a truly interesting blend between a Steyr-Mannlicher Model .222 SL receiver with custom-made amber grips that has been attached to a dual-trigger Charter Arms .44 police bulldog double-action revolver and sports 6 “futuristic” LED lights (2 green and 4 red), controlled by a switch on the lower side of the blaster.
Update: Ford's Rick Deckard sci-fi weapon, the only firing gun used in the cult film, went under the hammer for a whopping $270,000. Other highlights of the spring memorabilia sale, which brought in over $4 million were the Creature From The Black Lagoon's mask, Arnold Schwarzenegger's Mr. Freeze costume from Batman & Robin and Derek Meers' and Jason Voorhees costume from Friday the 13th.
