Blade Runner 2049

All that changed, of course, after money-hungry Hollywood producers started to realize that even the worst sequels to successful movies could still make them boatloads of money.

The film rolled out in most major markets over the weekend, grossing a strong, but not spectacular, Dollars 50.2 million for a global bow of USD 81.5 million. Pictures were hoping for a big opening weekend for the film at the box office. There were also two other new films that finished in the top four for the weekend.

"Blade Runner 2049" may repeat as a weekend victor against two new films opening in wide release this weekend - STXfilms' Jackie Chan action-drama "The Foreigner" and Universal-Blumhouse's horror entry "Happy Death Day".

Jeff Goldstein, of Warner Bros, said Blade Runner 2049 had disappointed in smaller cities and in the South and Midwest, where the running time and baseball playoffs appeared to have deterred moviegoers. "It's a tough one, because Denis made a lovely movie", Warners domestic distribution chief Jeff Goldstein said.

Based on the Charles Martin novel, the film - which has had mixed reviews - stars Elba as a surgeon and Winslet as a journalist who are left stranded together following a plane crash.

Fox's opening of survival drama "The Mountain Between Us", starring Idris Elba and Kate Winslet, was the weekend's runner-up, coming in slightly below projections with a moderate $10.6 million at 3,088 venues. The feature film to the hit children's TV show stars the voice work of Emily Blunt, Kristin Chenoweth, and Uzo Aduba.
