"Blade Runner 2049" tops box office but falls short of expectations

LOS ANGELES — "Blade Runner 2049" topped the box office over the weekend, but after months of buzz and anticipation, the sci-fi sequel fell short of box office expectations.

Despite positive reviews and certified star-power in Harrison Ford and Ryan Gosling, the dystopian thriller took in $32.7 million during its debut weekend, which hardly makes a dent in its reported $150 million budget.

The adventure romance "The Mountain Between Us," debuted in second place with $10.5 million. It stars Kate Winslet and Idris Elba as strangers who develop a relationship after their charter plane crash lands in the mountains.
