"Workprint" edition of Blade Runner? You gotta be kidding.

Milking every last penny from the franchise:


"This version could almost be called a "Raw" or "Extended" version because it stays true to the theater release but adds alot more stuff that was omitted from the directors cut. After seeing this at the film festival I was unable to see it again until the final cut box set was released. ... When it comes to the movie itself not much really changed. Just a bunch of scenes were added. In typical movie style predating the 21st century movies were shortened to no more than 2 hours and 90 minutes was considered to be ideal. Now adays a 2 hour movie is considered short. So many scenes were removed in the first release to make the 90 minute run. This simply restores them. It doesnt really add anything to the story but it is cool to see what you missed in the theater."

I think I'll pass on this one..
