    so where (and who?) was the fifth?
    According to Ridley Scott in an interview with Paul Sammon (Future Noir The Making of Blade Runner) there was a 6th replicant called Mary. They cast the part but dropped it because they couldn't afford to film the scenes. Stacey Nelkin was going to play the part but in the end it all came down to money. In the same interview Scott also says that "the unicorn scene would be the strongest clue that Deckard, this hunter of replicants, might actually be an artificial human himself"

    Another interesting thing in the interview is that the title Blade Runner came from a short William Burroughs book called Blade Runner -The Movie. If this sounds like I'm a bit of a Blade Runner geek then I'm not , I looked this up in response to reading this thread. One of my sons bought me the book about the film and the Director's Cut because he knew I really liked Philip K Dick and Blade Runner was one of my favourite movies. Thanks Gazjam for the heads up on the sequel.

    I've just watched the trailer for this, I have a horrible feeling it's going to be a disappointment.

    Sequels and re-makes usually are. There are the odd exceptions, though. I thought the genius of the original was the 1940s film noir detective plot combined with the dystopian future shtick. That raised it above the average. If they don't keep that combination for the new one then it will be a fail.

    I think a lack of appealing style is what put me off the new film, more than one karate kick in a trailer doesn't set the right tone for a Bladerunner sequel.

    I do very much hope I'm wrong though.

    The initial reviews are very, very encouraging with some saying it is better than the original. Check out the Telegraph's comments for example.

    It's blasphemy that they've done it. Just a money making exercise.

    Isn't that why films are made?

    Anyhoo, I'm a big fan of the original and looking forward to the sequel. The first reviews look very encouraging.

    I hope they do make money out of it.
    If a good story is continued with the same attention to detail why complain.
    At least watch and then complain!

    Some films are works of art, remaking them is like repainting the Mona lisa.

    There had been a number of sequel books written long time ago, so not a new idea to continue the story.
