Watch: BFI, Warner Bros. Commission New Trailer for ‘Blade Runner’ Re-release in U.K.

LONDON — The British Film Institute and Warner Bros. have commissioned a new trailer (above) for Ridley Scott’s “Blade Runner: The Final Cut,” which the BFI is re-releasing in the U.K. on April 3.

The trailer has been personally approved by Scott, who said: “The ‘Final Cut’ is my definitive version of ‘Blade Runner,’ and I’m thrilled that audiences will have the opportunity to enjoy it in the way I intended — on the big screen. This new trailer captures the essence of the film and I hope it will inspire a new generation to see ‘Blade Runner.’ ”

The BFI said in a statement: “The new trailer captures the energy of Ridley Scott’s 21st century cityscape, featuring some of the film’s most memorable moments with dramatic use of Vangelis’ soaring soundtrack.”

The audience’s strong appetite for the film, which portrays a dystopian vision of the future, was demonstrated during the BFI’s recent season of sci-fi movies, Days of Fear and Wonder, when a single showing of the film grossed more than £100,000 ($151,000) nationwide.
