Social media monitor Relish Mix sees a further sobering reality of what people actually thought about Blade Runner 2049. As of Saturday, RelishMix reports, “Convo swirls as fans argue over the ending and drop spoilers and plot points that are flying across social channels. Many comments relate to the film’s long length, the need to see the original before seeing Blade Runner 2049.” On Twitter, the combination of hashtags for #BladeRunner2049 and #BladeRunner have grown from 21K on Wednesday to 35K on Friday, which is good, yet behind for the genre, per RelishMix. Jared Leto is the biggest social star for the film, counting 20.2M across his social channels, and he even popped by the ArcLight Cinemas in Hollywood to delight fans on opening night. Blade Runner 2049 star Ryan Gosling only counts 2.3M on Twitter. Nonetheless, he’s been promoting the film.
