America A Prophecy
by William Blake


The shadowy daughter of Urthona stood before red Orc.
When fourteen suns had faintly journey’d o’er his dark abode;
His food she brought in iron baskets, his drink in cups of iron;
Crown’d with a helmet & dark hair the nameless female stood;
A quiver with its burning stores, a bow like that of night,
When pestilence is shot from heaven; no other arms she need:
Invulnerable tho’ naked, save where clouds roll round her loins,
Their awful folds in the dark air; silent she stood as night;
For never from her iron tongue could voice or sound arise;
But dumb till that dread day when Orc assay’d his fierce embrace.

En el IMDB teneis una seríe de curiosidades de la película, entre las que se encuentran desde datos curiosos de partes del guión…

Rutger Hauer (Roy Batty) improvised the “Tears in the rain” bit of his final speech: “I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die. ”

…a información que puede ayudar a desentrañar el enigma de si Deckard es en realidad un replicante…

At some point of the movie, each replicant has a red brightness in their eyes (Rachael in Deckard’s home, Pris in Sebastian’s). Deckard also has the shining in his eyes while talking to Rachael in his house.

…pasando por los típicos datos freakis que a algunos les mola buscar en la wikipedia:

The moves that Roy plays to checkmate Tyrell are from a famous game played in 1851 by the German chess master Adolf Anderssen. It is known to chess enthusiasts as “The Immortal Game” where Anderssen does actually sacrifice his Queen in order to force checkmate the very next move as in the movie.

Sería interesante, una vez visto el final cut, ver la primera versión, ya que parece ser que las diferencias son bastante grandes. Una de las más importantes y que la crítica más aplaudió cuando se suprimió, es la voz en off de Deckard relatando la historia:

Deckard: Gaff had been there, and let her live. Four years, he figured. He was wrong. Tyrell had told me Rachael was special. No termination date. I didn’t know how long we had together… Who does?
