US Box-Office: 'Blade Runner 2049' earns Dollars 31.5 million in opening weekend

Blade Runner 2049

It's a tough one, because Denis made a handsome movie.

It did not have a great, explosive spurt from the starting line - garnering only US$31.5 million (S$43 million) on the opening weekend in North America.

Tracking estimates initially projected the Denis Villeneuve directed sci-fi film to be on par with debut earnings of 2015's "Mad Max: Fury Road", which raked in $45 million, The Wrap noted.

"Blade Runner 2049", starring Harrison Ford and Ryan Gosling, opened with $32.7 million at the box office, according to comScore.

Blade Runner 2049 fell flat on its face this weekend, despite the promise of a hunky star, sick action sequences, and a heavy helping of nostalgia.

Jeff Goldstein, of Warner Bros, said Blade Runner 2049 had disappointed in smaller cities and in the South and Midwest, where the running time and baseball playoffs appeared to have deterred moviegoers. "The real trick now is to expand the audience past older men". "Where we did do business was in the major markets".

To further narrow things down, we included only one movie per franchise. Directed by Hany Abu-Assad, the Dollars 35 million film tells the tale of two strangers who are stranded in the wilderness after surviving a plane crash.

"#The Mountain Between Us" came in second place in its opening weekend, taking in $10.55 million from 3,088 theaters. "Blade Runner" has an 89% "fresh" rating on Rotten Tomatoes while "The Foreigner" has 80%. Based on the Hasbro toys and television series, the movie's voice cast includes Emily Blunt, Kristin Chenoweth, Uzo Aduba and singer Sia.

The above suggests that Leto is well aware that not only were his appearances in both "Suicide Squad" and "Blade Runner 2049" on the short side, but that they were so prominent in the promotion and trailers that he and his fans ultimately felt a little underwhelmed when they weren't really added to in the released film.
