    After last month's record-breaking high, October starts off with a slump as Blade Runner 2049 underperforms at $32 million, while runner-up The Mountain Between Us delivers a decent $10.5 mil., with It clinging on to 3rd. But unfortunately, My Little Pony fell short at $8.8 mil., and did worse than the G1 film from the '80s if you adjust for inflation. So it seems like they're not going to rush into a sequel.

    But at least it did better than Jem. So make of that if you will.

    So Blade Runner 2049 didn't do good?

    I certainly hope Blade Runner 2049 under performed. What a mess. A very bland, boring mess.

    That's because all Hollywood seems to be doing right now is just nothing but remakes/reboots/rehashes of already existing films.

    Eeyup. Disney has been doing this a lot in the past few years.

    So I see one of the reasons GOODBYE CHRISTOPHER ROBIN has received a PG rating is for "scenes of bullying."

    I've been saying for a while that the whole anti-bullying campaign has kind of lost its effectiveness and has pretty much become nothing more than a tool, but "scenes of bullying" garnering PG ratings seems almost as ridiculous as "depictions of smoking and/or drinking" garnering such a rating as well.

    Depends on the scene. Scenes showing bullying could be very dramatic and intense depending on what happens. Smoking or drinking onscreen isn't likely to trigger anyone's negative emotions.

    Happy Death Day was the winner this week, which essentially takes the Groundhog Day loop concept and puts a horror twist on it. In 2nd is Blade Runner 2049, while The Foreigner is in 3rd, and has already made a ton in China. No surprise there as Jackie Chan is the star.

    Wow. Blade Runner is not doing well at all. Too bad, it sure looks good...just don't think anyone really wanted a sequel to Blade Runner.
