Blade Runner DVD Bonanza

Blade Runner has a five-disc special edition coming out on DVD in December. Five discs!  In addition to all the commentaries, trailers, making-of stuff, etc., there are five different versions of the movie included: Ridley Scott’s all-new final cut version of the film, the 1982 theatrical version, the 1982 international version, the 1992 director’s cut, and something rare called the “workprint version.” And it’s currently ranked #6 among the bestselling DVDs at Amazon.

I know Blade Runner has plenty of devotees out there (I have never seen it, though I would like to), but a five-disc DVD suggests a very high level of devotion to this movie. I don’t think I would watch this many different versions of any film.
