I really like the image but it is not in the new film. I think I read that it was created by a digital artist. But not sure who and can’t find that article. I really want to know the origin as I liked it so much I painted it
What's on your mind?
I might also post this on Soldier's talk page, but figured I should put it here first.
Something that's been on my mind lately as I've been editing is the film Soldier. It's here on the Wiki because David Peoples wrote it as a "spin-off sidequel" to Blade Runner. As such, there are a couple of nods to Blade Runner in the film, such as an appearance by a spinner and name-checking the Tannhäuser Gate and Shoulder of Orion. Of course, these could also be considered merely easter eggs, as the also references at least seven other Kurt Russell films and Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan.
Now, I don't mind Soldier being on this Wiki because of Peoples saying it's a Blade Runner film (I'm not sure if anyone else involved with the production consider it to be "Blade Runner canon") and I don't think anything in it contradicts Blade Runner material in any way (though it's been years since I've actually watched Soldier). Also, I doubt anyone's going to make a Wiki just for the film Soldier, so I think it's a good enough home for it all here, although there isn't currently much Soldier info on the Wiki. The priorities are clearly Blade Runner and Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, as it should be.
But enough blabbering from me. Is anyone adamant about Soldier's removal? Is everyone just like me and will just let it be? Anyone REALLY want Soldier to stay on here (and hopefully willing to help expand the related articles)?
It had just occurred to me - why don't the creators of Replicants just put tracking implants in them so Blade Runners can track them easier? Would surely stop the need for a VK test?
The Van Ness Pet Hospital is up to something... #ExposeVanNess
So I am soon going to the Blade Runner Final Cut Secret Cinema experience, where participants are assigned characters and required to wear a full costume. I have bought the tickets as a surprise present for somebody who loves the movie, however, I am in charge of sorting our costumes and I am not familiar enough with the film to know what is best to wear. We have been assigned 'scavengers', the website suggests clear rain macs, goggles etc. But in terms of hair/makeup what would this entail? I have a blue wig? And is there any other good costume pieces, for both guys and girls I could buy? Thanks! x
I’m going to post my short film I just finished called Blade Runner: Revolution on my channel very soon!
My name is Alex and I’m a 17 year old Filmmaker from Canada. I worked really hard on this short project so if for whatever reason someone doesn’t like it please tell me why in the comments. Your feedback is appreciated!
Been looking for the oriental looking dress she wears on the cover or one similar for my girlfriend for valentines, does anybody know any sources.
Hi. Does anyone here own a copy of the UK 4-disc 4K version of Blade Runner?
I am a hardcore BR fan and have watched every iteration of the original at least four or five times a year since I first saw it on a grainy black and white TV set waaaay back in 1984.
After my 2nd viewing of BR:2049, two things stand out to me in this master piece of story telling.
During the scene where K is searching through DNA files at the LAPD HQ, we are exposed to a specific mention of Galatians Syndrome, which, I assume is what Dr. Ana Stelline had been afflicted with. Whilst not naming the illness in her encounter with K, Stelline mentions having been ill since the age of 8. I've yet to find any serious discussion of this plot element, so I did a little digging to see if I could discover some underlying meaning.
According to Christian Bible study, the Galatians were a people, Celts who occupied a region in what is now Turkey. The Galatians suffered repeated attacks from outside invaders who attempted to conquer them - finally prevailing in around 64 BC. Galatia was eventually brought under the yoke of the Roman Empire. If we take the Syndrome mentioned in the DNA record for the missing child and Ana Stelline's compromised immune system as being one and the same - the syndrome is characterized as attacking the immune system of the sufferer, requiring that they be sealed away in a protective *bubble* so as not to suffer outside attack from the impure environment.
Whether or not Ana's syndrome is genuine is up for debate. She could indeed have the syndrome - or it may be a ruse pepertrated by Deckard or someone close to him to protect her from both Niander Wallace and the Replicant resistance.
One other thread that fascinates me, is the reference to 6.10.21 - the mysterious birthdate etched into the horse and the tree at Sapper Morton's farm. Referring back to Christian writings , I did a search for 6:10-21 and was directed to a reference to the book of Ephesians, which is again compelling in the context of the Reolicant Freedom Movement.
Ephesians 6:10-21 New International Version of The Bible.
The Armor of God
10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people. 19 Pray also for me, that whenever I speak, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel, 20 for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should.
21 Tychicus, the dear brother and faithful servant in the Lord, will tell you everything, so that you also may know how I am and what I am doing.
Could this hint to a possible manifesto for the Replicant Uprising in the future? A Call to Arms as it were?
BR:2049 is a film that must be watched multiple times. The subtleties of story underneath the central story are so tantalising that they can't not provoke deeper discussion about the world in which these events play out.
