“Terminator Genisys”of Skydance Productions has crossed $300m mark at the global box office. The future of the “Terminator” movies depends on the balance.
According to DEN OF GEEK, when Skydance and Paramount ultimately teamed up for a proposed new trilogy of “Terminator” films, it cost $20m to acquire the rights. However, the new installment of the “Terminator” franchise have ended up in an unexpected manner.
“Terminator Genisys” has not received very good reviews after it has opened at the beginning of July. Moreover, the film has also received warning from a few people. The film has not received the feedback as expected by the director Alan Taylor, and is being “marked down as one of the summer’s disappointments.”
Even in terms of financial aspect, the film has not concentrated on what has to be really done. The source reported that the film has crossed $300m at the global box office, this past weekend. It is to be noted that $85m comes in the US.
In fact, the film is the lowest-grossing sequel of the “Terminator” franchise at the American box office. Certainly, “Terminator Genisys” leaves Paramount and Skydance in a position which is worse than “Terminator Salvation” which attracted $125m of business in America.
“Terminator Genisys” has not yet released in few places such as China. In fact, China could either “make or break the film.” If the film does not run as expected in China also, then it would be a more difficult time for Paramount and Skydance.
However, Paramount has allegedly not yet decided whether to proceed with the rest of the trilogy or not. The Hollywood Reporter reported a statement of the studio, “we will definitely need to see the holds globally to confirm that people like the film.” However, as of now, another sequel of the “Terminator” series is unconfirmed.
The “Terminator” franchise will continue only if a sequel is confirmed, or if anyone is coming forward to take the risk.
