    Blade Runner fans rejoice: This free theme pack offers screens from the movie and sounds that recall its dark mood.

Fans of the landmark 1982 sci-fi movie Blade Runner just got some great news: Variety reports that the film is about to be revived, with a sequel or prequel on the way. We're sure to see new releases of the classic in the interim--perhaps Ridley Scott has yet another director's cut in the works?

If you're as excited as I am, you'll want to celebrate--and installing this free Windows 7 theme pack is a great way to start. I've hand-picked several high-quality wallpapers contributed to WallpaperBase.com by fellow Blade Runner fans over the years (you can visit the site to learn about the individual contributors). I also added some appropriate sound effects from Freesound Project members Jobro, Roscoetoon, Syna-Max, Tallers, and Uberhuberman (all made available under a Creative Commons license).

Note: To install the Windows 7 theme, just unzip the archive file and double-click the themepack within. Windows does the rest. And if you like this theme, you may also enjoy the Hal9000 Windows 7 Theme.
