Blade Runner 2049 Blu-ray Review | Blu-ray.com

Rarely has a movie arrived in theaters with the peculiar mixture of anticipation and dread that awaited director Denis Villeneuve's sequel to Ridley Scott's 1982 Blade Runner. Although many key members of the original creative team returned for Blade Runner 2049—including screenwriter Hampton Fancher, visual futurist Syd Mead, original star Harrison Ford and Scott himself as executive producer—the degree of difficulty seemed impossibly high.

The story is too old to be commented.

Can't believe this movie flopped at the box office.......

So then clearly you didn't know that the original was an epic failure, hated by both critics and audiences and took 10 different cuts of the film to finally find a cult audience. Cult audiences do not make a film successful. Its not shocking at all that 2049 was a flop also, Blade Runner isn't some massively popular franchise a minority do not out weigh the majority.

Well the original was an original, it started with zero fanbase and had to work its way up. It was definitely a weirder film that people didn't know what to do with at the end. This is a different film than the original, the story is better fleshed out and easier to follow. It is also more conclusive and doesn't rely as much on being an art piece. It could be a standalone film and still be amazing.

I am not so sure it did. I mean, if we listen to the people that tried to bash it since premiere weekend, we get a response like deadpoolio's.

It did 259 million at the box office worldwide. That's not too bad. Production cost was around 150, so it profited 100 million. DVD and Blu Ray will add to that.

But those are facts and this is the internet. Facts don't do well here.
