However, the $100 million drama failed to surpass $10.6 million in the United States and $26.2 million worldwide.

“Very disappointing”
“It was very disappointing,” Scott said in a conversation with the New York Times about the outcome. “The most conflicting thing is if you thought you did it right, you didn’t. That’s what you thought with Blade Runner, but you didn’t!”

“I was crucified at the time by a well-known critic at the time named Pauline Kael. Which is why I’ve never read reviews. You have to have your own opinion. If you’re worried about what the audience thinks and what they might want, this is a killer. A good movie will find itself, And now Blade Runner is in the Library of Congress.”
