Did people expect Blade Runner to bomb?

Also it seems like we can tell when a movie is going to bomb hard just from the message board. How can they not tell?

The original bombed, and is mostly known to geeks, people who saw it a long time ago and cinephiles, so nothing about it bombing is surprising.

In 1982 when the original was released, it grossed just $23.44 Million. Adjusted to today, that's still only $70.89 Million over 5 weekends.

For comparison, Blade Runner 2049 was originally projected to open around $50-$55 Million so it coming in at just $32-$33 Million is a massive blow.

On a note not related to the box office, the original got a mixed critical response when it was released, while this one is mostly getting praised. I think it's a difference between age gap and today's critics being different than the ones of old, but that's another discussion altogether.

Every ad for that movie was so bad. How is a guy who dresses up like frost supposed to be terrifying?

A movie about a guy who dresses up like a clown made big money so no reason a moving snowman couldn’t scare people too.

The clown movie was 1.) getting good word of mouth ("The Snowman" wasn't) and 2.) had nostalgia on it's side.

I posted in the horror thread already on Amityville but that's hilarious they only did over $700 total on 10 screens. YIKES. But then again when you put it for free on Google Play....well....why bother with a theatrical release really? Plus they have delayed over and over on it since 2013 or something.

The new Saw movie really didn't do much $$$ wise, and I think I read that is the second worse opening for a Saw film. Obviously this second wave they are trying with the Saw franchise isnt going to go far.

It looks like it was ONLY on Saturday too, so I'm assuming there was some kind of contractual obligation that required them to have some kind of theatrical release for it, but they obviously didn't care if it made any money in theaters.
