With Blade Runner just celebrating the 30th anniversary of its US release, it seems only fitting that some celebrations are in order.
This month’s San Diego Comic-Con will see just that, at a special celebration event for the film on Friday, July 13th.
According to the Comic-Con website:
7:00-8:00 Blade Runner 30th Anniversary Celebration — In 1982, Blade Runner, director Ridley Scott’s classic adaptation of SF master Philip K. Dick’s novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? was released to theaters and forever changed the face of cinematic science fiction. Filmmaker, BR expert, and acclaimed author Paul M. Sammon (Future Noir: The Making of Blade Runner) hosts a 30th anniversary celebration of this influential masterpiece. Sammon (who was present throughout BR’s filming and met Philip K. Dick) will interview numerous BR cast and crewmembers, including BR art director David Snyder and BR: The Final Cut producer Charles de Lauzirika. Be there to meet these and other very special BR guests.
With Fox putting on some sort of Prometheus event at Comic-Con as well, I wouldn’t be surprised if Ridley Scott also makes an appearance, but either way this promises to be a real treat for fans.
