Two things have been confirmed this week with regards to Terminator: Genisys. First, the movie was not profitable. Despite garnering $440 million worldwide, it will not take even half of that, more than needed to even break even. Second, as expected, the movie will not get sequels.
Says The Hollywood Reporter, for their October 9th issue:
The film illustrated a hard truth: “Paying for movies is one thing. Steering them creatively is another.” The film did well overseas, especially in China, where it grossed $112 million. But the $150 million-plus movie still will lose money, and sources say the notion of a Terminator universe is on hold indefinitely.
Also on hold, apparently, is Arnold Schwarzenegger’s revenge drama 478. That movie was originally due to shoot, well, round about now. And since we haven’t heard a peep with regards to casting or anything else, I think it’s also a possibility that that movie is also ‘on hold indefinitely’.
Perhaps only Conan can save Schwarzenegger now…
