    Yeah, It didn't have the best opening weekend sadly. But I'm hoping it will have some legs.
    It doesn't have a lot of competition this month. Probably one of the horror films coming out in the next few weeks will be a hit with Halloween coming.

    I wonder if the runtime and the reputation of the original being "boring" is keeping people away?
    I really hope word of mouth will encourage people to watch this in the theater, its worth seeing it on the biggest screen possible.

    I think they sold it in a pretty weird fashion. Blade Runner took its time to gain its status and the trailers and promos came out for this looking like any other sci-fi action movie. Blade Runner was not just another run of the mill sci-fi flick as we all know. While it earned its reputation with film buffs, the general public never truly warmed to it en masse. I think alot of people had a hard time with Harrison as really more of an anti-hero as well. Honestly the feeling I guess that I'm settling on with 2049 is that its almost a prestige project and one that maybe only really cares about satisfying the hardcore fanbase. Still like the first movie perhaps it'll find itself a larger audience over time... you just never know what kind of life a movie will take on down the line. The fact that seemingly most people who have been to see it rate it pretty highy is as good a sign as any.

    Amazing! I'll riot if this film doesn't at least get nominated for visual and/or practical effects.

    This was simply incredible! Going to need another watch to completely get my head around it all though.

    :thumbs::notworthy:

    I had wondered how they'd "recreated" Rachel, since she looked so realistic... I genuinely thought it was probably just a really convincing lookalike rather than CGI, but once again they have me completely stunned! :OMG:
