‘BLADE RUNNER 2049’ DISAPPOINTS WITH OPENING WEEKEND BOX OFFICE!

Even with A-list stars like Ryan Gosling and Harrison Ford on board, Blade Runner 2049 opened over the weekend with a lukewarm $32.7 million. Projections had the sci-fi flick on track to bring in around $50 million. Directed by Denis Villeneuve, the film received critical praise but still fell short of expectations. With a price tag of about $150 million, the film will likely have to rely on overseas ticket sales to make up the difference.

Settling for third place was the Stephen King adaptation, It, which scored $9.96 million at the box office. The horror flick has raked in over $305 million domestically in its fifth week of release and more than $600 million worldwide.
