So here’s the good news: Blade Runner 2049 made more in its opening weekend than Blade Runner made in its entire theatrical run. Here’s the bad news: It still only made $31.5 million, well below the $50 million its studio hoped it would clear over the weekend.

Here’s the full box office chart:

Blade Runner did have a solid per-screen average, and it got an A- CinemaScore from audiences, good signs that the film could have decent legs in theaters, and at least come close to recouping its estimated $150 million budget. Still, the film has the makings of a large-scale cult film. In other words: A faithful Blade Runner sequel.

In second place for the weekend was The Mountain Between Us, a survival thriller starring Kate Winslet and Idris Elba. It also got an A- from CinemaScore audiences, and grossed an estimated $10.1 million over the weekend. In third place was It, which dropped just 42 percent and earned another $9.6 million for the weekend. It’s now over $300 million in total domestic grosses, an incredible number for a dark horror film. The folks who made The Dark Tower must be scratching their heads right now.

Fourth place went to My Little Pony: The Movie and its $8.8 million. Bronies were plased enough with the film to give it an A- CinemaScore. And in fifth place was Kingsman: The Golden Circle, Matthew Vaughn’s spy pastiche, which took in an estimated $8.1 million. Its domestic total to date is just below $80 million.

In limited release, the big winner of the weekend was The Florida Project, Sean Baker’s moving portrait of the impoverished denizens of a seedy Orlando motel. On just four nationwide screens, The Florida Project earned an impressive $153,342, good for a per-screen average of well over $38,000. Hopefully the film continues to perform well as it expands around the country; that’s something that every movie lover should see.
