Disc 2: "Dangerous Days: Making Blade Runner": A feature-length authoritative documentary revealing all the elements that shaped this hugely influential cinema landmark. Cast, crew, critics and colleagues give a behind-the-scenes, in-depth look at the film -- from its literary roots and inception through casting, production, visuals and special effects to its controversial legacy and place in Hollywood history.

Blade Runner: Collector's Edition (Four discs) The Four-Disc Collector's Edition includes everything from the Two-Disc Special Edition plus three additional versions of the film, as well as an "Enhancement Archive" bonus disc of enhanced content that includes 90 minutes of deleted footage and rare or never-before-seen items in featurettes and galleries that cover the film's amazing history, production teams, special effects, impact on society, promotional trailers, TV spots, and much more. Disc 3: 1982 Theatrical Version: This is the first theatrical version of the film. It contains Deckard/Harrison Ford's character narration and has Deckard and Rachel's (Sean Young) "happy ending" escape scene. 1982 International Version: Also used on U.S. home video, laserdisc and cable releases up to 1992. This version is not rated, and contains some extended action scenes in contrast to the Theatrical Version. 1992 Director's Cut: The Director's Cut omits Deckard's voiceover narration and removes the "happy ending" finale.

Each briefcase will be individually numbered and in limited supply. Included is a lenticular motion film clip from the original feature, miniature origami unicorn figurine, miniature replica spinner car, collector's photographs as well as a signed personal letter from Scott. Disc 5: Workprint Version: This rare version of the film is considered by some to be the most radically different of all the "Blade Runner" cuts.

Setting sail on the last eligible day, Crowhurst began a treacherous journey that would leave six of the nine men dead, and his own life, sanity, and victory hanging in the balance.
