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.
