Fake Magazine Covers from Bladerunner

Bladerunner Fake Magazine CoverSay what you will about Ridley Scott’s output in recent years (“It’s an invitation…to find a better script”), but 1982’s Bladerunner remains one of the most influential sci-fi flicks of all time.

It’s good to see that, in this future at least, the print medium is not dead and that our beloved Roy Batti doesn’t have to hop online in order to indulge in any ogling.
