Also opening this weekend at 3,246 theaters is Time Warner's (TWX) Warner Bros. climate disaster film "Geostorm," which stars Gerard Butler. The film, which had a production budget of $120M, is expected to earn in the range of $9M-$11M. Another Warner Bros. film, "Blade Runner 2049," the sequel to the 1982 science fiction classic "Blade Runner," is expected to earn an additional $7M-$8M in its third weekend at theaters. Other publicly traded companies in filmmaking include 21st Century Fox (FOX, FOXA), Disney (DIS), Sony (SNE), Time Warner (TWX), and Viacom (VIA, VIAB).
