'Blade Runner 2049' Opens With $6.8 Million in Early International Box Office

'Blade Runner 2049' Opens With $6.8 Million in Early International Box Office

Blade Runner, directed by Ridely Scott, was released in 1982, and starred Harrison Ford as Rick Dickard, whose job is to "retire" the replicants, bioengineered robots who seem like humans.

One thing that's for sure is that when Denis Villeneuve was hired for Blade Runner 2049, it was to direct a one-off movie.

Blade Runner became part of the American lexicon and many of its lines became a part of our everyday language, with memorable dialogue like, "If only you could see what I've seen with your eyes". Ridley Scott, with his alarmingly precognitive visual and mortal landscape, had done to the generation what Black Mirror has consistently been achieving with millennials.

Ever since it hit the screens this week, "Blade Runner 2049" has garnered rave reviews. "For me, it was enough to try to stay on the horse for this run, you know?"

The film stars Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford, Ana de Armas, Sylvia Hoeks, Robin Wright, Mackenzie Davis, Carla Juri, Lennie James, Dave Bautista, Jared Leto and Barkhad Abdi.

When Hammond joked with Ford that his first question about the sequel was about his fee, he roared back, "Show me the money!" He will also evidently be working on a Dune adaptation at some point. So it comes as no surprise that they are anticipating a huge opening weekend of upwards of $50 Million at the box office. "I wanted every time we used special effects to be necessary to the story and to have a meaning, and not just be there for the sake of playing with toys". But Warner Bros.is betting that the film's cult following will allow the sequel to significantly outperform the original.
