Blade Runner 2049 Comes Out Swinging

Blade Runner 2049 was well received (including with us), but it didn’t do terribly well at the box office.  Costing $300 to make (and market), it only pulled $92 million at the U.S. box office, with a further $259 million worldwide.

Now though the film appears to be finding legs on home media.

Released on DVD at Christmas and Blu-ray mid-January, the film has sold $3.8 million worth of DVDs and $18 million Blu-rays so far.  That’s enough to make it the second strongest selling home media release of 2018 so far, behind It.

It was also R-rated, so both movies have hegemony as far as a rating goes at the top.  There is no word on rental sales, but it’ll obviously only help Blade Runner 2049 as well.

    Best double check this. I saw someone say the new Star Wars movie had done well on Bluray, but the thing is they report units shipped to stores, not sold by the stores.

    Great movie with great performances by Ryan gosling and Harrison Ford. I hope they make a sequel that brings Rick Deckard back again.

      Yeah the only shitty and brief scene was that “resistance army” bullshit, I’m pretty sure some stupid exec or ridley scott forced this scene to be in it for an eventual “sequel” , all the rest is top notch.

    Some terrific moments in this that you can savour on the big screen. Although when I watched it, I didn’t think it was as good as the 1st movie.

      The first movie is 10/10.

        @frenchpredator:disqus True fans agree

        but BR2049 is 8/10 IMHO – a definite blu ray buy

    Haven’t seen it yet. How heavy is it on the feminazism? Current year and such…

    I also read in a few places that Ben Affleck’s “The Accountant” was the most rented movie of 2017. Which is good news cause it was a good movie and a bit underrated in my opinion.
