'Blade Runner 2049' Makes Slight Gain With $32.8 Million Opening Weekend
Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst with comScore, said: "The core of enthusiastic and loyal "Blade Runner" fans were over 25 and predominantly male, and propelled the film as expected to the top spot, but a lengthy running time and lesser interest among females made it tougher for the film to reach the original weekend box office projections". "Alcon and Denis [Villeneuve, the director] made an incredible movie".
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.
A sequel to Blade Runner (1982), the film stars Ryan Gosling and Harrison Ford, with Ana de Armas, Sylvia Hoeks, Robin Wright, Mackenzie Davis, Carla Juri, Lennie James, Dave Bautista and Jared Leto in supporting roles.
And while the film's final total for its opening weekend is a slight improvement over estimates, $32.8 million compared to $31.2 million, it still isn't much to write home about.
"We did well in the major and high-profile markets", he said. Set thirty years after the original film, the story depicts a replicant blade runner named K, who discovers the remains of a once-pregnant replicant.
To further narrow things down, we included only one movie per franchise.
Blade Runner 2049 is ahead of another new entrant in the rankings: The mountain between us, from Hany Abu-Assad, in which two strangers - Kate Winslet and Idris Elba - are trying to get out after the crash of their small plane in the middle of a chain of snow-capped mountains, with little hope of being rescued. The feature film to the hit children's TV show stars the voice work of Emily Blunt, Kristin Chenoweth, and Uzo Aduba. It will close the weekend with $305 million domestically plus $298.8 million internationally to top the $600 million worldwide mark.
Made on a budget of $150m, typically studios spend roughly $100 million again on marketing, meaning to be profitable Blade Runner 2049 needs around $250m.
