'Blade Runner 2049' Makes Slight Gain With $32.8 Million Opening Weekend

Sony 3D Creator lets you virtually star in Blade Runner 2049

In addition to the series' regular voice cast of Tara Strong, Ashleigh Ball, Andrea Libman, Tabitha St. Germain and Cathy Weseluck, the film also features Emily Blunt, Kristin Chenoweth, Liev Schreiber, Michael Peña, Sia, Taye Diggs, Uzo Aduba and Zoe Saldana.

Variety reports that the film had been expected to draw $45m-$50m domestically, taking into account its R rating, but fell short.

It did not have a great, explosive spurt from the starting line - garnering only US$31.5 million (S$43 million) on the opening weekend in North America.

Despite glowing critical reviews and lots of buzz, the belated sequel to genre-defining cult classic Blade Runner is so far limping towards an underwhelming haul that started badly with a $30m domestic pull. It was, however, number one in most territories.

This comes from 4,058 screens against a reported budget of $150 million. This should be achievable, if not through its cinema run then certainly through its home release.

When Jared Leto originally joined "Blade Runner 2049" it was widely assumed that the Academy Award victor would be going toe-to-toe with Ryan Gosling in the hugely anticipated blockbuster.

The film will still hope to accumulate a fair taking from across all global 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. While it is beloved and renowned, its stature is born more from its place in cinematic history and visual accomplishments rather than any initial success.

Coming in fourth place right behind "It" was "My Litte Pony: The Movie", which made $8.88 million at the box office from 2,528 theaters.

Thirty years after the events of the first film, a new blade runner, LAPD Officer K (Ryan Gosling), unearths a long-buried secret that has the potential to plunge what's left of society into chaos.
