‘Blade Runner 2049’ tops box office
Los Angeles, Oct 11:
“Blade Runner 2049” may have been the top choice for moviegoers this weekend, but the long-anticipated sequel failed to generate the soaring box office returns industry watchers expected.
Despite positive reviews and certified star-power in Harrison Ford and Ryan Gosling, the dystopian thriller took in $32.7 million during its debut weekend, which hardly makes a dent in its reported $150 million budget.
The adventure romance “The Mountain Between Us,” debuted in second place with $10.5 million. It stars Kate Winslet and Idris Elba as strangers who develop a relationship after their charter plane crash lands in the mountains.
“My Little Pony: The Movie” opened in fourth place with $8.9 million.
