I’ve not seen it yet, but I understand that Terminator:Genisys recieved a less than favourable response when it was released in July. Despite a trilogy being confirmed, its future looked unlikely as it barey managed to scrape $89million in the U.S.
Surprisingly, the movie has been a box office hit internationally, in China it made $27.4 million on its opening day. It has now made a total of $440.2 million worldwide. Which now places it in the top 10 grossing films of 2015.
It sits above Mad Max: Fury Road ($374.7 million), Ant-Man ($401.4 million) and Kingsman: The Secret Service ($410.1 million).
The Terminator said he’d be back and, it looks like he will be.
The rights revert back to James Cameron in 2019 so expect at least two sequels before then.
