“Blade Runner” is an American neo-noir science fiction media franchise originating from the 1968 novel “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?” by Philip K. Dick, about the character of Rick Deckard. The first film adaptation was 1982’s “Blade Runner,” directed by Ridley Scott. Although the film initially underperformed at the American box office, it became a cult classic, and has had a significant influence on science fiction. A novelization and a comic adaptation of the film were released in the same year. From 1995 to 2000, three novels serving as sequels to both “Blade Runner” and the original novel were written by K. W. Jeter, a friend of Dick’s. A sequel film called “Blade Runner 2049” was released in 2017. To celebrate the 30th anniversary of “Blade Runner” in 2012, a short film was released, and in the lead up to the release of “Blade Runner 2049,” several more short films detailing events that occurred between 2019 and 2049 were released.
