Blade Runner Trailer Done As Classic Film Noir




Via Nerd Approved

This sweet little video was created by Chet Desmond on youtube. Check it out after the break. 





On his youtube page Chet adds this comment:
Just wanted to clarify that this isn't meant to be a radical re-imagining of the film or a recreation of a 40's-style trailer. As many have pointed out, Blade Runner is already very "Noir." I just wanted to take those aspects of the film and accentuate them into something hopefully interesting. The piano song is "Memories of Green" off the soundtrack. All sounds and images in the trailer are from the film or soundtrack. Thanks again!




What did you think?
Have you seen Blade Runner?
Do you dream of electric sheep?

  1. It really fits well. Yes, the film is very noir and atmospheric, and with a slow pace. Lends itself well to a retro trailer.

  4. The original has a voice over, while the Director's cut does not.

  5. Ha, that's clever. I have seen Bladerunner and I've read the book. They are quite separate entities. They should say about the movie, 'loosely based on the book', lol.

  6. Considering that the film is based on film noir it's quite fitting. Great find David!

  7. What is funny is I am probably in the minority that actually like the director's cut more.

  8. I've seen parts of it. Hubby really likes that movie. I like the idea of it but find it a little too dark and gruesome.

  9. Art imitates life.
    Life can be dark and gruesome.

    My alleged human, Gary, has seen Blade Runner. I dream of electric cats.

  11. When I think of Blade Runner, I think of the Swartznegger movie (is that right? Or did I just drop my nerd card?) But I like this version better.
    Now I am off to google Blade Runner and edumacate myself ;)

  14. The book and the Movie are a must for the intellectual nerd.
    You are free to pick up your card, for one day we will all be required to have it implanted so it won't get lost.
    I just hope my Proctologist has small hands.

  15. That is so freaking cool! Totally fits the film.

    I do not dream of sheep, but if I did, they'd probably be zombie sheep. :D

  16. Oh wow, that's awesome! I love this film, and really want to watch it again now. I heard a rumor they were re-making it? Quite frankly I hope they don't--the original is just too good.

  17. So the Sheep would groan...
    "GRAINS....GRAINS!"

  20. You can never go wrong with a story about replicants...unless they go looking for their maker.

    I would imagine you chase the electric cats you dream of.
