There some serious heat in the io9 movie tournament this week. Blade Runner Vs. Ghostbusters promises to be an all out blood bath. Same goes for Akira Vs. Alien. Here is the schedule for voting for the rest of the tournament. Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back had the most votes last week with 4,641 votes.
