It feels to me that the only real things driving the box office now are Superhero movies (mostly marvel and some DC) and Star Wars. Disney kind of owns the box office. Sequels to movies that aren't sourced on Comics or Star Wars seems to have mixed results at the box office.

It makes you wonder what will happen to the box office when Comic Book movies have run their course.

I think I'm going to go see Blade Runner tomorrow... but only because a friend wanted to go.... I was probably going to hold out for watching it at home. I like the 1st one, but I never saw it until it was already pretty old. I'm not quite as nostalgic for it as other people.

I think this movie will recover in terms of box office collections by word of mouth .
I have booked IMAX tickets for Friday and I see the people are still watching it but then this is just 2nd week

I watched the movie in IMAX the other day and I didn't like it. The whole film was too mono tone and dragged. Love the Cuban model that played Joi tho. HAWT HAWT HAWT!

A must watch...
You can't beat this level.of cinematography.
Don't listen to "too long " or " too slow" sort of folks , they can only like and appreciate wonder woman or lala land kind of movies.

Saw it last night, eh. Something that felt unnecessary and felt long. Was interesting but don't see why people love it.

I won tickets to watch it and am expecting the same thing. The first one was really slow and long as well. I have to use those tickets so I am dreading the almost 3 hour runtime.

I've seen it twice already and because I'm a loyal fan of the original, I really loved it and thought Denis Villeneuve truly delivered for this sequel. It's unfortunate it is not playing in IMAX any longer. Can't wait to see it on the giant IMAX screen at the Cinesphere in due time.

I have a bunch Cineplex movie codes (from buying General Mills cereal boxes) that I have to use up before November is over, so I'm definitely seeing it one more time for sure.

On New Year's Day, I rang it in with a proper laser IMAX screening at the re-opened Cinesphere. It was my 4th screening of this new masterpiece on the big screen, but only twice in laser IMAX. My friend and I both agreed that the presentation of this movie was even superior to our laser IMAX screening at the Scotiabank Theatre downtown. The two laser IMAX theatres' picture quality were on par with each other. However, my God the sound at the Cinesphere was louder, cleaner and even more crisp than at the Scotiabank. Overall, the acoustics was just better in every way at the Cinesphere. We came to the conclusion it was louder and even clearer at the Cinesphere because this IMAX theatre was designed specifically for these types of movies. Scotiabank's IMAX theatre is still amazing, but you have to remember it is still in a multiplex. They simply cannot crank up the volume because they have other auditoriums and have to respect the sound levels for each room. Cinesphere is just one giant IMAX theatre and its they only auditorium in the complex so turning up the volume is never an issue.

Blade Runner 2049 fans, I highly encourage you to see it at the Cinesphere one more time (second run movie) before it's too late and becomes only available on blu-ray and DVD etc.

Unless the Cinesphere adds more screenings the website says it is only playing until January 7th. Hurry, trust me on this one! LOL

Lol.

Rfd ain't cheap. Blade Runner 2049 isn't worth $15.
