Regardless of how attractive it is and how admirably well made, it missed the magic that turns something from artistically of merit to financially successful.

The film cost $155 million to make, and analysts now suggest that it will struggle to break $100 million by the end of its run in cinemas. Pictures were hoping for a big opening weekend for the film at the box office. This feature-length animated film made its entry to the fourth place at the box office with $ 8.9 million.

What's worth bearing in mind is that the original Blade Runner actually didn't do well at all at the box office, making a paltry $28 million in the US.

Blade Runner 2049 opened this past weekend, and now its Rotten Tomatoes score is in.

The long-anticipated sequel to 1982s "Blade Runner", which is considered a sci-fi classic, also had star power behind it in Ryan Gosling, #Harrison Ford, Jared Leto and Robin Wright.

"I'm disappointed", said Jeff Goldstein, president of domestic distribution for Warner Bros., which released the independently produced movie in the United States and Canada. The audience was mostly male (71%) and overwhelming older than 25 (86%).

To further narrow things down, we included only one movie per franchise.

"We did well in the major and high-profile markets", he added. Directed by Hany Abu-Assad, the Dollars 35 million film tells the tale of two strangers who are stranded in the wilderness after surviving a plane crash. Set thirty years after the original film, the story depicts a replicant blade runner named K, who discovers the remains of a once-pregnant replicant. That easily topped Kate Winslet and Idris Elba's "The Mountain Between Us, " which debuted in second with $10.6 million. Based on the Hasbro toys and television series, the movie's voice cast includes Emily Blunt, Kristin Chenoweth, Uzo Aduba and singer Sia. Focus Features' expansion of Judi Dench's "Victoria & Abdul" came in 8th with $4.2 million at 732 locations.
