Theater Counts: Blade Runner Cracks 4,000 Theaters

October 5th, 2017

Blade Runner 2049

It certainly isn’t as hard as it used to be, but anyone hoping for a record-breaking weekend for Blade Runner 2049 will be pleased to see the film crack 4,000 theaters this weekend. Warner Bros. reports it will play in 4,058 locations starting on Friday, which actually breaks one record already: it’s the widest October opening, ahead of (surprisingly) Shark Tale, which debuted in 4,016 theaters way back in 2004.

Also opening wide this weekend, The Mountain Between Us will play in 3,088 theaters, and My Little Pony trots into 2,528 stables. Not quite wide, The Stray will open in 639 movie houses, just a few fewer than Victoria & Abdul’s expansion into 732.
