HOLLYWOOD – Denis Villeneuve’s Blade Runner 2049 had a disappointing opening week.
Blade Runner 2049 has flopped at the box office, only taking a measly $210 according to reports.
Harrison Ford star of the film said:
It’s complete shit. You go into a store with $210 dollars, you come out with one shoe.
The disastrous opening came as a surprise as the film boasts two bankable stars, wonderful critical reception and is the sequel of a film largely consider a cornerstone of science fiction cinema. Ryan Gosling contended the news was not all bad:
I know some shoe shops where you can get a decent pair of shoes for $210. Like slip-ons or espadrilles. Obviously not suede ankle boots. Harrison is probably thinking of suede ankle boots. You’d need more money for those.
We asked Denis Villeneuve about the film’s performance.
Obviously I’m disappointed. On the one hand we wanted to make a film in a certain way and I think we made that film. So in that sense I’m glad. But in another, I had my eye on these really nice suede ankle boots and I guess I’m not going to be able to get those now. Until the Dune money comes in at least.
