Blade Runner Noir Trailer Still

Blade Runner fit its futuristic aesthetics and philosophical questions about the nature of humanity into the trappings of a hardboiled detective story. For YouTube user Chet Desmond, though, it just wasn't quite hardboiled enough. Desmond has recut the movie into a stylized trailer for a 1940s noir film, giving us a quiet, sepia-toned version of Deckard's gritty world. Alternate trailers are a dime a dozen, but the accompanying music — and the sound work in general — is really what pulls this one together.
