What if 'Blade Runner' Starred Bogart? Check Out These Great Imaginary Movie Posters

Or if a summer blockbuster had been made way back in cinema history, who might have been the director? And what would the poster look like? Such is the theme around which artist Peter Stults’ series “What If: Movies Re-Imagined” revolves, taking the form of movie posters from alternative-reality Hollywood. Complete with Golden Age stars and artwork to match the re-imagined time period, the results are truly stimulating to the imagination. Thanks to Distractify for living up to its name and finding these pieces work. These posters certainly make for an exercise in nostalgia — for bygone eras of another universe, perhaps — but that ‘What If’ question also makes for a nicely creative thought experiment.

Hidden faces can be found by zooming into hi-res photos of eyes

I have high resolution images I take of my pets where I was able to get some very good reflection images from the eye. I took photoshop and was able to get a pretty good image of the background of the room and of me taking the picture with the camera. Its best with bounce flash or no flash (and a very bright background). Obviously not in the 30mpx range, but even at 6.4mpx you can pull out a lot of detail with the right software.

Moments Lost – Music And Art Inspired By Blade Runner

Here’s a video intro to the project: Here’s what they have to say about Moments Lost: We’re approaching the creation of the music with a rig similar to Vangelis’ original setup, of course including the Yamaha CS80, Roland VP-330 strings and Rhodes. On this track we also used the Prophet 5, Jupiter 4 and Analogue Solutions Vostok mk1. The working methods are also inspired by Vangelis, using a live and direct approach to capture the energy and feel of the original recordings where everything is played by hand.

Together with a professional writer we’re creating new small stories, called moments, that will be the themes for the music, and to please the eyes we’re working with illustrators Kilian Eng and HR-FM for the creation of the album art.

My eldest son and I watched Blade Runner the other day (the 1982 International Theatrical release, which included the somewhat-controversial voiceover), and he commented about how unremarkable a lot of the technology in Blade Runner actually is.

Un-advanced Technology In Blade Runner

This got me thinking about the nature of the technology used in the fictional year 2019, and I tried to figure out, in my own mind, why it would be so ordinary. The Absence of Technology It appears that, except for synthetic animals, some voice-controlled computers and anti-gravity, most people don’t appear to have an enormous amount of technology around them. Granted, the writers didn’t anticipate the rise of mobile computing, but whose to say that we won’t go back to payphone-like devices and stop carrying small computers in our pockets? If you look at Blade Runner, and then look around the average home, frankly, technology is actually pretty invisible. It is easy to forget just how much technology we are surrounded by today.

Blade Runner: Which predictions have come true?

Both are rich sources of predictions about the future. But what has actually come to pass? Based on Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? By Philip K Dick, Ridley Scott's Blade Runner - the tale of a hunt for four dangerous "replicant" humans - is a classic envisioning of a dystopian future, set in 2019 Los Angeles. Minority Report, based on a short story by Dick of the same name, and set in Washington DC in 2054, is another cornucopia of technological possibility, where crime is predicted and therefore prevented.

Although most of L.A. 2000: A City for the Future is devoted to hyperbolic rhetoric about Los Angeles's irresistible rise as a "world crossroads," a section in the epilogue (written by historian Kevin Starr) considers what might happen is the city fails to create a new "dominant establishment" to manage its extraordinary ethnic diversity. Blade Runner: The City as Replicant — Science Fiction & the City.

The city in Blade Runner is, like most cities representing the future, synthetic. However, it is unlike most other cities in futuristic works, in that the city grew organically: it developed through time and the evolution of human desire, as opposed to being designed for a specific purpose, as in, for example, Zamyatin’s We. In We, the city is perfectly contained, and everything inside is transparent; the city in Blade Runner seems to never end, and everything inside is veiled. More Human than Human. Music and lyrics[edit] The title, as well as lyrical references, are taken from the film Blade Runner, which was the slogan of the Tyrell Corporation, manufacturers of the replicants in the film.[1] The moaning in the intro to the song was sampled from a post-apocalyptic porn movie called Café Flesh directed by Stephen Sayadian.

Blade Runner is a 1982 American neo-noir dystopian science fiction film directed by Ridley Scott and starring Harrison Ford, Rutger Hauer, Sean Young, and Edward James Olmos. The screenplay, written by Hampton Fancher and David Peoples, is a modified film adaptation of the 1968 novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? By Philip K. Dick. The film depicts a dystopian Los Angeles in November 2019, in which genetically engineered replicants, which are visually indistinguishable from adult humans, are manufactured by the powerful Tyrell Corporation as well as by other "mega-corporations" around the world. Their use on Earth is banned and replicants are exclusively used for dangerous, menial, or leisure work on off-world colonies.
