Blade Runner 2049 falls short during opening weekend

Blade Runner 2049 falls short during opening weekend

"Alcon and Denis [Villeneuve, the director] made an awesome movie". However, this was a poor opening weekend for a movie that had a big budget, as it cost at least an estimated $150 million to make.

Monday's final result throws serious doubt onto what had been high hopes for a box office success story.

The more family friendly "My Little Pony: The Movie" opened in fourth place with $8.9 million, followed by the spy-thriller "Kingsman: The Golden Circle" with $8.7 million.

Blade Runner 2049 is out now.

Blade Runner 2049 sees Harrison Ford reprising the role of Rick Deckard alongside Ryan Gosling, Ana de Armas, Sylvia Hoeks, Robin Wright, Mackenzie Davis, Carla Juri, Lennie James, Dave Bautista, Jared Leto and Edward James Olmos.

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. "Where we did do business was in the major markets". I personally prefer his more alive and loose-limbed L.A. detective from "The Nice Guys", but Gosling's nature plays into the movie.

Scott is a producer this time around, but he had his hands in the film's development, along with "Blade Runner" scribe Hampton Fancher (who co-writes here with Michael Green). Directed by Hany Abu-Assad, the United States dollars 35 million film tells the tale of two strangers who are stranded in the wilderness after surviving a plane crash.

Coming in at number 2 is The Mountain Between Us starring Kate Winslet and Idris Alba with a US weekend gross of $10 million. Based on the Hasbro toys and TV series, the movie's voice cast includes Emily Blunt, Kristin Chenoweth, Uzo Aduba, and Sia. A Warner Bros. executive said he remained optimistic about the future performance of "Blade Runner 2049", pointing to the overall A- CinemaScore and strong word of mouth.
