    Just found out that Alien and Blade Runner apparently share the same universe.

    This is in the Prometheus extras:



    With Alien: Covenant coming out and now this, might there be a future crossover?

    This really is looking good. I'm going to actually have to see this in the theater.

    I'm pretty sure I watched the original, but honestly I don't remember it, what it was about, or anything else.

    You should refresh your memory and rewatch it. They released a final director's cut about 10 years ago that Ridley Scott had complete control over.

    I looked up the book and found it isn't a book, but based on a book about "Do Androids dream of electric sheep" or something

    Have been looking for the book, and found a pdf copy of it. If you want it, let me know.

    As I mentioned in my Founders Backwoods Bastard beer review, I'm watching Blade Runner 2049 right now.

    Definitely enjoying it!

    Not going to post any content but I wanted to mention something funny.

    As K is overflying the landfill area in one part, I saw the garbage scows dumping trash and thought to myself, "Man, those really look like the garbage scows in Soldier." (Remember that Kurt Russell movie?)

    I've been reading through the movie trivia on IMDb and stumbled across this:

    The 1998 film "Soldier" was written by David Peoples, who also wrote the screenplay to the original "Blade Runner." Peoples has always maintained that "Soldier" is set in the same universe as "Blade Runner," and "2049" contains at least one subtle nod to "Soldier:" The garbage scows that K sees in the metal wasteland on his way to the sweatshop are nearly identical to the one that deposited Todd (the protagonist of "Soldier," played by Kurt Russell) onto the off-world colony Arcadia, the primary setting of the 1998 film. Since "2049" happens over a decade after "Soldier," the scows are have minor modifications - though they are immediately recognizable to the eagle-eyed viewer.

    Guess I was right!
