  • At the Box Office: Blade Runner 2049

Directed by Denis Villeneuve from a screenplay by Hampton Fancher and Michael Green, Blade Runner 2049 is based on characters from Philip K. Dick's novel "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?".

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.

At 163 minutes, this film is getting on for an hour longer than the first movie, but we are on a journey of discovery with K, with the same kind of questions raised about life and existence that were a vital part of director Ridley Scott's movie. Sony Pictures Releasing International is distributing in all offshore territories where the Denis Villeneuve-helmed pic has grossed $6.8M+ through Thursday. Of course Blade Runner 2049 also came with a steep price tag, costing somewhere around $150-185 million. And so begins K's nightmarish journey that would lead him to Dickard (Harrison Ford) and face some startling truths.

Indeed, Ridley Scott in the past has suggested that there could be more Blade Runner movies after 2049. I think fans are going to be very happy with this sequel, I know I was.
