Weekend Box Office 10/8 - BLADE RUNNER Fizzles

#1 Post by AndyDursin » Sat Oct 07, 2017 9:08 am

Not sure why there's a lot of surprise that BLADE RUNNER is coming in "under expectations." The original bombed and is a cult fanboy-driven phenomena -- that casual viewers are finding this movie slow and unappealing is no surprise at all.

Anyway, looks like this is going to share being a commercial failure in common with its predecessor:
Those affiliated with the movie have been saying that $400M is the magic breakeven number, but Deadline sources believe that’s far from true. One source with knowledge of the budget claims it’s significantly higher in the $170M range versus the $155M being floated around. To Alcon’s credit they took advantage of foreign credits and rebates, shooting Blade Runner 2049 in Hungary. One insider even asserts they came in under their original proposed budget.
These numbers are IMO going to end up being even lower in the final result...
1.)Blade Runner 2049 (ALC/WB/SONY), 4,058 theaters / $14.1M Fri. (includes $4M previews) / 3-day cume: $36.5M / Wk 1

2.)My Little Pony (LG), 2,528 heaters / $3.1M Fri. (includes $290K previews) / 3-day cume: $11.1M / Wk 1

3.)The Mountain Between Us (FOX), 3,088 heaters / $3.45M Fri. (includes $400K previews) / 3-day cume: $9.7M / Wk 1

4.) It (NL/WB), 3,605 theaters (-312) / $2.7M Fri. / 3-day cume: $9.3M (-45%) / Total: $304.6M / Wk 5

5/6.) Kingsman: The Golden Circle (FOX), 3,488 theaters (-550) / $2.3M Fri. / 3-day cume: $8.14M (-52%) / Total: $80M / Wk 3

American Made (UNI), 3,031 (+7) / $2.37M Fri. (-61%) / 3-day cume: $8.12M (-52%)/Total: $30.5M/ Wk 2

8. ) Victoria & Abdul (FOCUS), 732 theaters (+655) / $1.2K Fri. (+300%) / 3-day cume: $4.5M (+313%)/Total: $6.3M/ Wk 3

9.) Flatliners (SONY), 2,552 theaters / $1M Fri./ 3-day cume: $3.5M (-46%) / Total: $12M /Wk 2

I think you're right on the money, Andy.
