Pictures were hoping for a big opening weekend for the film at the box office.

Warner Brothers Studio's "Blade Runner 2049" easily topped the domestic box office this weekend, taking in $32.75 million from 4,075 theaters according to Box Office Mojo.

The film produced by Ridley Scott has a stellar Rotten Tomatoes score of 88% Fresh.

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 England worldwide is now in the process of changing agents and only earns around £50,000-a-week at Mauricio Pochettino's side.


Though nominations for the Director and Best Actor and Actress categories in prestigious film competitions seem highly unlikely given that none of the performances don't seem as strong enough to gain enough support to make it to the top five of each list, Blade Runner 2049 is indubitably a technical masterpiece.

Instead, the movie's earnings fell short due to a lengthy 163-minute running time, less traction among younger moviegoers than anticipated, and shortfalls in the Midwest, South and smaller markets. I personally prefer his more alive and loose-limbed L.A. detective from "The Nice Guys", but Gosling's nature plays into the movie. Based on the Charles Martin novel, the film stars Elba as a surgeon and Winslet as a journalist who are left stranded together following a plane crash. This feature-length animated film made its entry to the fourth place at the box office with $ 8.9 million. Based on the Hasbro toys and TV series, the movie's voice cast includes Emily Blunt, Kristin Chenoweth, Uzo Aduba, and Sia. Sony is handling foreign distribution and saw the opening weekend top $50 million.

With all these theatrical releases, the action film Kingsman: the golden circle has fallen from first to fifth place with revenue of $ 8.7 million in three days and 80 million dollars in three weeks.

This comes from 4,058 screens against a reported budget of $150 million.
