“Blade Runner” was Ridley Scott’s reworking of Phil Dick’s “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep”. The original tale, published in 1968, was set in the futuristic date of 1992. By 1981 this seemed much too close in time, so Scott pushed it back to 2019…

Now 2019 seems not so futuristic – though we might have working “Spinners” by then. Just no “Off-World Colonies” nor “Replicants”. Not sure that’s a bad thing.
