Blade Runner 2049 ends weekend slightly up on original box office estimates

Blade Runner 2049 ends weekend slightly up on original box office estimates

All that changed, of course, after money-hungry Hollywood producers started to realize that even the worst sequels to successful movies could still make them boatloads of money. With a budget of $150 million, though, it's hard to view these results as anything but a disappointment.

The film will still hope to accumulate a fair taking from across all worldwide markets, so perhaps it's too soon to call this a flop, but it does show there was perhaps a little too much faith shown in the sequel to a film a lot of people might have fibbed about ever having seen.

My Little Pony: The Movie is a 2017 animated musical fantasy film based on the television series My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, which was developed as part of the 2010 re-launch of the My Little Pony franchise by Hasbro.

Despite glowing reviews, the big budget follow-up to cult sci-fi classic Blade Runner failed to impress at the box office on its opening weekend.

Left-back Chris Brunt could not cope with Kimmich's raiding runs alone and only got protection when Stuart Dallas was brought on for the second half.

"I'm disappointed", said Jeff Goldstein, president of domestic distribution for Warner Bros., which released the independently produced movie in the United States and Canada.

Men over 25 accounted for half the audience, according to PostTrack, with women over 25 making up 27%. "Where we did do business was in the major markets". Based on the Charles Martin novel, the film stars Elba as a surgeon and Winslet as a journalist who are left stranded together following a plane crash.

Survival drama The Mountain Between Us, starring Idris Elba and Kate Winslet, was the weekend's runner-up, coming in slightly below projections with a moderate US$10.1 million. Focus Features' expansion of Judi Dench's "Victoria & Abdul" came in 8th with $4.2 million at 732 locations. Like CoF, Blade Runner is often remembered for its electronic soundtrack, which perfectly draws the viewer further into the dystopian world created by director Ridley Scott.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle and American Made are duking it out to complete the top five, both on around $8.1 million.
