Blade Runner sequel off to slow start

Sony 3D Creator lets you virtually star in Blade Runner 2049
     
     
       By Ida Torres

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.

The key factors for the underperformance were the movie's 163-minute running time - which limits the number of showings each day - plus far less traction among younger moviegoers than anticipated.

Warner Bros.is handling domestic distribution on "Blade Runner 2049" through its output deal with Alcon Entertainment.

Furthermore, "Blade Runner: 2049" received an A- CinemaScore, which is why critics are somewhat baffled at the film's box office results.

Perhaps this is partly due to the original film's questionable sexual politics, or because the marketing push focused on male stars Ryan Gosling and Harrison Ford and scarcely included any one of its several important female characters.

Saudi king says consensus with Russia on broadening relations
Peskov said the cooperation between Moscow and Riyadh was in the interest of both countries and also of the world's stability. Russian Federation and Saudi Arabia announce large investment agreements and joint ventures to further cement relations.

And while the film's final total for its opening weekend is a slight improvement over estimates, $32.8 million compared to $31.2 million, it still isn't much to write home about. It's also the long-awaited sequel to one of the most acclaimed and beloved sci-fi films ever made.

My Little Pony: The Movie is a 2017 animated musical fantasy film based on the television series My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, which was developed as part of the 2010 re-launch of the My Little Pony franchise by Hasbro.

"We did well in the major and high-profile markets", he added. I personally prefer his more alive and loose-limbed L.A. detective from "The Nice Guys", but Gosling's nature plays into the movie.

The film produced by Ridley Scott has a stellar Rotten Tomatoes score of 88% Fresh. It will close the weekend with $305 million domestically plus $298.8 million internationally to top the $600 million worldwide mark.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle and American Made are duking it out to complete the top five, both on around $8.1 million.
