163 minutes is a pretty intimidating runtime for casual viewers, which partially accounts for the underwhelming box office returns on Blade Runner 2049. If you hesitated to commit to a visually ambitious sci-fi epic that’s almost three hours long, then a four-hour sci-fi epic might be out of the question (at least until it arrived on Blu-ray). But that was almost the case with Blade Runner 2049; according to the editor of Denis Villeneuve’s sequel to Ridley Scott’s sci-fi classic, the first cut of the film was much longer, and may have required repeat visits to the theater.
