Both producer Ridley Scott and director Denis Villeneuve cited the movie's length and slow pacing as the main reasons for its disappointing box-office results. Scott felt that the movie was at least 30 minutes too long, although he admitted that he himself was partially to blame since he provided input for the screenplay. Villeneuve said that while still proud of the film, he realized afterwards that he had made "the most expensive art house movie in cinema history", and knew it would be a huge financial risk. He admitted that the running time and a marketing strategy that gave away minimal plot elements may have scared away audiences, especially people less familiar with the original. See more »
The Memory Bearings are optical devices, so how were they affected by the Blackout of 2022, which was caused by an electro-magnetic pulse ? The memory bearings are read optically, but we can only guess how they are written, and edited ; a punched card is also read optically, but it would be "edited" by a shotgun, and "erased" by a rainstorm.

The IMAX print viewed by Turkish film critics at the movie's press screening in two days advance of its Turkish theatrical release censors nudity by digital zooming. Since the movie had not yet been classified by Turkish censors at the time of the press screening, this intervention appears to have been carried out by Sony Pictures for the Turkish market, as well as for some non-Western markets in general.

My goodness how can you expect an audience to sit through three hours of mind numbing slow-mo contradictory conversations that make no sense and expect people to pay for the privilege.
I guess, we should have known better since it is a sequel.
All that rescued this film was several hard body, super thin, flaunting babes. Yup, those ashamed of the human body, nature and heterosexuality should stay away too. Otherwise, without the chicks the film would be a complete bust.
