Blade Runner 2049 disappoints at United States box office

Blade Runner 2049 did fare better worldwide however, making an additional $50m.

Instead, the movie's earnings fell short due to a lengthy 163-minute running time, less traction among younger moviegoers than anticipated, and shortfalls in the Midwest, South and smaller markets.

Warner Bros.is handling domestic distribution on "Blade Runner 2049" through its output deal with Alcon Entertainment.

With a large $150 million dollar budget, Blade Runner 2049 was projected and expected to pull in at least $50 million during its opening weekend at the box office.

Perhaps this is partly due to the original film's questionable sexual politics, or because the marketing push focused on male stars Ryan Gosling and Harrison Ford and scarcely included any one of its several important female characters.

According to USA Today, the reason why "Blade Runner 2049" underperformed can be seen in the opening-weekend data of who saw the movie. It's a tough one, because Denis made a attractive movie.

The remake of the Stephen King killer clown thriller It has now taken $305m in the United States, and nearly as much internationally, to top the $600m mark globally, making it the most successful horror film. "It's a tough one, because Denis made a handsome movie", Warners domestic distribution chief Jeff Goldstein said. I personally prefer his more alive and loose-limbed L.A. detective from "The Nice Guys", but Gosling's nature plays into the movie. There were also two other new films that finished in the top four for the weekend. "Where we did do business was in the major markets".

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. On Rotten Tomatoes it has a certified fresh score of 88 percent from 253 critic reviews.

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