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.

We see a number of bee hives and agent K's hand covered with bees. However the area is devastated, there is no sign of other life and certainly no flowers from which the bees can harvest nectar. However, several assemblies with round discs are shown to be where the bees harvest, next to the cases of bees where they live. So they must have found ways to have bees harvest off something that is not a flower. Additionally, most of the animal life seen in the Blade Runner universe is artificial.
There are no opening credits, and the title proper is not shown until the ending credits.
