As of January 18, 2018, Blade Runner 2049 has grossed $92 million in the United States and Canada, and $167.2 million in other territories, for a worldwide total of $259.2 million, against a production budget of $150–185 million. The projected worldwide total the film needed to gross in order to break even was estimated to be around $400 million. Scott attributed the film’s underperformance to the runtime, saying: “It’s slow. Long. Too long. I would have taken out half an hour.”

Critical Response via Wikipedia
Peter Travers of Rolling Stone gave the film three-and-a-half stars out of four, calling it an instant classic and writing: “For Blade Runner junkies like myself, who’ve mainlined five different versions of Ridley Scott’s now iconic sci-fi film noir, every minute of this mesmerizing mindbender is a visual feast to gorge on.” Peter Bradshaw of The Guardian gave the film five out of five stars, praising the production design, cinematography and score, and calling the CGI some of the best he had ever seen, writing: “It just has to be experienced on the biggest screen possible. Blade Runner 2049 is a narcotic spectacle of eerie and pitiless vastness, by turns satirical, tragic and romantic.” A. O. Scott of The New York Times described the film as “a carefully engineered narrative puzzle” that “tries both to honor the original and to slip free of its considerable shadow”, and mostly succeeds. He found it, though, ultimately unequal to the original, describing Blade Runner 2049 as “a more docile, less rebellious ‘improvement'”. He also lauded Villeneuve’s direction to which he attributed an “unnerving calm, as if he were exploring and trying to synthesize the human and mechanical sides of his own sensibility”, as well as the cinematography and visual effects, which he describes as “zones of strangeness that occasionally rise to the level of sublimity”
