Blade Runner

(Haven't seen this movie) BUT:

"Even with all the raves in the world, Blade Runner 2049 couldn’t overcome the fear fact that audiences weren’t interested in the Blade Runner brand. And the R-rating and 163-minute running time meant that the casually curious couldn’t take the kids and hope for the best. Sure, the original film flopped too back in 1982, earning just $27 million domestic on a $28m budget. But Alcon and Sony didn’t spend $155m to make a future cult classic, and Warner Bros. wasn’t running a charitable campaign to help Roger Deakins win that Best Cinematography Oscar. Maybe the industry should be less afraid of Rotten Tomatoes and more afraid of spending $155m on sequels to movies that couldn’t top $30m 35 years ago."
