Thirty years after its theatrical debut, Ridley Scott's futuristic action thriller Blade Runner continues to influence directors both visually and thematically (Read: People just won't stop ripping the damn movie off.). Sometimes, it's for the best, as in the Wachowski's recent grandiose sci-fi flick Cloud Atlas; other times, though, it's disastrous, like in this summer's awful Total Recall remake.

Regardless of the biters' respective quality, very few modern films will ever match the original Blade Runner's eye-popping wizardry, all of which is presented in this new 30th anniversary edition. In addition to the classic film itself, the reasonably priced box includes a 72-page art production book, several featurettes, and a photo gallery with more than 1,000 new images.
