Deckard: a blade runner and newspaper reader

by andybechtel

“Blade Runner: The Final Cut” has a brief run at a theater in my area. I had never seen the movie, originally released in 1982, on the big screen. The experience did not disappoint.

Among other things, I noticed that our first view of the Deckard character, played by Harrison Ford, shows him reading a newspaper. Apparently, the visionaries who dreamed up what Los Angeles would look like in 2019 thought that print media would last at least that long.

See more newspapers of the future (as foretold in the movies) in this post at I09.
