After the failure of “Terminator Genisys” at the U.S. domestic box-office earlier this year, it looked like proposed plans for two more “Terminator” films and a potential TV series spin-off were put on the scrap heap.
Then came the strong international box-office figures for the film, including robust business in China, which seemed to stir talk that the sequels could well proceed.
Now though THR reports that despite the $440 million worldwide haul, “Terminator Genisys” will still lose money and their sources say: “the notion of a ‘Terminator’ universe is on hold indefinitely.”
‘Genisys’ grossed a mere $89 million domestically in the United States. Sporting a $150 million production budget, not to mention marketing and distribution costs of a similar number, the news does not come as a huge surprise.
