Blade Runner 2049 Whiskey

This year we’ve already heard about two different whiskeys being released by Old Forester and Glendronach distilleries as a cross-promotion with Kingsman: The Golden Circle. But there’s one more movie-themed whiskey on the horizon inspired by another major fall blockbuster.

Blade Runner 2049 hits theaters in under three weeks, and along with it will be a special limited edition whiskey from Johnnie Walker, inspired by the liquor’s own appearance in both the original Blade Runner and the forthcoming sequel.

Cinera

Movie theater attendance has become a problem in recent years due to high ticket prices, poor customer service experiences, and a wealth of entertainment choices from various subscription streaming services.

Now the product is ready to be ordered and shipped this December. But is this a new piece of home theater tech that’s worth the money? Read More »

In honor of such a special occasion, it’s only fitting that Boba Fett gets an equally special voice actor for the audiobook: Jon Hamm.
