    So is this the old one or the new one ?

    I have never seen this movie before and would like to get the new one which people seem to have been waiting for.

    I think you need to ask Amazon. I want the new one as well. I already have the one in the picture. The new one doesn't have two lines of white writing under Blade Runner, just 1.

    I wouldnt worry, its clearly is the new release, the title say "Remastered DC" and says "DVD 2006". Retailers often get pics wrong.

    The old release is OOP so there not going to have stock ;)

    The remastered version has the same cover. It is a bargain at that price, I paid £11.99 for the R1.

    Full price with shipping is £5.21 of course. You can get the R1 from cdwow for as little as £3.99 (which is what I did) if you have the magic ;)

    Well they did remove some writing from beneath the words ...Blade Runner, are you saying that they have put it back again? They removed...

    'The Original Cut of the futuristic adventure'

    That is not there on the R1 but, the cover is the same otherwise. The R2 I saw had that line.

    I have both the R1 and R2 of the remastered cut (crazy I know) and both covers are exactly the same (a few minor placement differences but the content is the same) with only 1 line below the main title which is 'THE DIRECTORS CUT'.

    As previously noted, ignore the image at amazon, they have simply used the old dvd cover art. Infact a quick peruse of the most popular sites all list the old cover art. I don't think i've seen the new R2 art anywhere!

    Yeah, I've seen the new R2 around here (£11.99), and it just Has 'The Directors cut'
    I'd order this, but it will not arrive before Christmas, so I'll wait.

    Given the box set out next year and the soon to follow HD DVD/BluRay versions I think I'll hang on. Hopefully the HD version will have a DTS soundtrack or at least 5.1.
