February isn’t too far away (although it does feel a little unfair that our American friends get it a few weeks earlier). It feels even closer when you see images such as this- the rear artwork of one of the disc editions. Man, it feels like it’s real and almost in my hands. Can’t wait to watch this film again. The distractions of Christmas almost seem an inconvenience.
Also, there is new hope: over at Screendaily there is an interview with Villeneuve and upon being asked about one day returning again to Blade Runner, he replied . “The door is not closed. I know, to my great admiration and excitement, that for Alcon the journey goes on. They’re proud of the movie and they’re not closing the door.”
Well. Merry Christmas everyone, that feels like Santa came early. Bravo, Alcon. Even if it never happens, that intent is enough.
