Blade Runner

In this neo-noir cult classic, life in a dystopian near future is sustained by work done on earth’s off-planet colonies. Mega-corporations produce “replicants,” genetically formed creatures nearly identical to humans, whose sole purpose is to provide off-planet labor. When a small band of replicants mutiny and flee their colony for Los Angeles, their retrieval becomes the task of Rick Deckard, a weary Blade Runner (played by Harrison Ford) whose work is to track and kill rogue replicants.

Directed by Ridley Scott. Produced by Charles de Lauzirika and Michael Deeley.
