Blade Runner Performing Poorly At Box Office – ManlyMovie

Blade Runner Performing Poorly At Box Office

Despite being an excellent movie, it seems that Blade Runner 2049 is not doing too well at the box office.  Here is some analysis from Forbes:

Despite rave reviews and white-hot buzz in the film twitter bubble, Blade Runner 2049 is turning into (at least) a domestic whiff because general audiences didn’t care. The very expensive ($155 million, after rebates) sci-fi sequel to a film that was itself a (somewhat) acclaimed bomb is essentially playing like Ridley Scott’s “for the fans” Alien: Covenant. The Ryan Gosling/Harrison Ford futuristic tone poem earned just $12.7m yesterday, including $4m (31%) in Thursday previews

The film still could have legs because of good word of mouth and having a white hot reputation, but it’s kind of disheartening to see the above.

    History repeats itself
    It’ll only get truly appreciated years down the road, just like the original

  • Max Borg

    Not surprising, since the trailers and review impositions made it hard to sell the movie to general audiences…

  • TheOldMcClane

    not enough dudes in leotards apparently.

    • csc-60293

      it’s all my fault. every time i pay to see i film it ends up making no money at the box office. I went to see blade runner

      • TheOldMcClane

    There’s nothing to worry about in fact it did alright, opening in number 1 with 32 million week-end is about as big as Expendables 2. (it did 35 opening week-end in 2012) i doubt the budget is 150 million, its more like 120 million. They expected 50 but got 31.

    Remember the original FLOPPED hard and made like 3 million the first week-end.

    The R rated films are doing great in 2017 im not worried at all Look ar IT, already 605 million worldwide and Deadpool last year made 785 million worldwide

    I mean look at the numbers of some 2017 R rated films:

    -Logan : 616 Million Worldwide on a 97 Million budget

    -IT : Grossed 605 Million on a 35 Million budget that is fucking HUGE!!

    -Hitman’s Bodyguard : 30 Million budget – 175 Million worldwide and #1 for 3 weeks in a row. Sequel is coming

    -Kingsman 2 : 253 million worldwide : 40 Million opening in #1, which is better than the first one and bigger than Expendables 1 and 2. Lets see the total gross after a few weeks. Expect a sequel for sure

    -Baby Driver : Grossed 224 Million on a small budget of 34 Million, HUGE PROFIT

    -Annabelle 2 : 296 Million on a 15 Million budget

    -John WIck 2 : 171 Million worldwide, bigger than the first, budget is about 30 million, good profit.

    -Atomic Blonde : 95 Million gross on a 30 million budget

    Even Baywatch didnt flop (very soft R) made 177 on a 70 million budget not much profit if any but not a flop

    I might forgot some too.

    All in all, the R rated films are making more and more money every year since a few years…The future is looking bright for fans of R rated films.

    Deadpool 2 is coming which is gonna have a HUGE fucking budget and R rating.
