Blade Runner 2049 underperforms in opening box office weekend

"Blade Runner 2049" may repeat as a weekend victor against two new films opening in wide release this weekend - STXfilms' Jackie Chan action-drama "The Foreigner" and Universal-Blumhouse's horror entry "Happy Death Day". The original soundtrack still manages to make the hairs on the back of our necks stand on end.

This video focusses on how to recreate those vintage sounds on the original hardware and some newer equivalents, including the Roland Boutique SH-01A and Arturia CS-80V.

Jeff Goldstein, of Warner Bros, said Blade Runner 2049 had disappointed in smaller cities and in the South and Midwest, where the running time and baseball playoffs appeared to have deterred moviegoers.

Blade Runner 2049 received rave reviews from critics with Flickreel even awarding it a five star rating. I personally prefer his more alive and loose-limbed L.A. detective from "The Nice Guys", but Gosling's nature plays into the movie. Directed by Hany Abu-Assad, the United States dollars 35 million film tells the tale of two strangers who are stranded in the wilderness after surviving a plane crash. It stars Idris Elba and Kate Winslet as a surgeon and a journalist, respectively, who survive a plane crash, with a dog, and are stranded in High Uintas Wilderness with injuries and harsh weather conditions.

The fifth weekend of New Line's blockbuster "It" showed plenty of staying power in 3rd place with $9.6 million at 3,197 sites. Sony is handling foreign distribution and saw the opening weekend top $50 million.

Lionsgate's animated "My Little Pony" trotted in 4th with a modest $8.9 million at 2,528 locations, slightly above forecasts.

Fox's third weekend of "Kingsman: The Golden Circle" come in 5th with $8.7 million while Universal's second weekend of "American Made" came in 6th place, followed by Warner's third weekend of "The Lego Ninjago Movie" with $7 million.
