New “Terminator” Aims At Decent Launch

New Terminator Aims At Decent Launch

Long-range box-office tracking figures are in for “Terminator: Dark Fate” and results seem to be in line with the franchise’s past openings.

Box-Office Pro reports that they are forecasting the film to have an opening weekend between $35-$45 million when it opens at the beginning of November.

That would actually be one of the better of the franchise as the highest to date was “Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines” with $44 million. It’s also a big step up from the $27 million that “Terminator: Genisys” opened to in 2015.

The new film sees Arnold Schwarzenegger, Linda Hamilton and franchise creator James Cameron returning to the series but audience apathy over a franchise that has burned them a few times now may impact the numbers.

“Terminator: Dark Fate” opens in cinemas on November 1st.
