Blade Runner only made $32 million in total during its run at the box office in 1982, so Blade Runner 2049 will have already outgrossed its predecessor within its first weekend.
Early indication is that the risk is going to pay off, as the long-awaited sequel to Ridley Scott’s sci-fi classic Blade Runner is set to have a solid opening weekend at the box office.
Reviews haven’t yet been revealed for Blade Runner 2049, but if they are as positive as fans hope, that could help give the box office a boost.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Blade Runner 2049 is currently tracking for a debut of $40 million or more when it arrives in theaters on October 6.
