BLADE RUNNER- THE FINAL CUT TO EXPAND THEATRICALLY

The limited theatrical engagement of Warner Bros.' BLADE RUNNER: THE
FINAL CUT, which began its run on Oct. 5 in New York and Los Angeles,
will continue to roll out in select cities from now through January
2008. Digitally restored and re-mastered from original elements and
scanned at 4K resolution, with new and improved vfx effects (from Sony
Pictures Imageworks, Illusion Arts, Lola Visual Effects and The
Orphanage), BLADE RUNNER: THE FINAL CUT also contains never-before-seen
added and extended scenes that director Ridley Scott created
specifically for the new edition.

The theatrical release of BLADE RUNNER: THE FINAL CUT is in conjunction
with the much-anticipated Dec. 18 debut of the film on DVD from Warner
Home Video in three different editions, all with upgraded 5.1 audio: a
two-disc Special Edition; a four-disc Collector's Edition; and the
five-disc Ultimate Collector's Edition in numbered, limited-quantity
"Deckard Briefcase" packaging. Each edition contains exclusive extras to
enhance the BLADE RUNNER experience, including a new, extensive
documentary featuring never-before-seen material, behind-the-scenes
footage and cast and crew interviews, plus filmmaker commentaries and
much more.

Simultaneous HD DVD and Blu-Ray versions will be released in two
configurations: a five-disc Ultimate Collector's Edition and a five-disc
Complete Collector's Edition. The Ultimate Collector's Edition will be
released in numbered, limited quantities of the "Deckard Briefcase." THE
BLADE RUNNER Complete Collector's Edition will contain all of the
Ultimate Collector's Edition content but will not include the limited
edition briefcase.
