Before Terminator: Genisys hit theaters this past summer, Paramount Pictures was hopeful that the sequel, which also functions as a franchise reboot, would be a big hit for them. The studio even scheduled two sequels to arrive in 2017 and 2019. However, when the film only rounded up a disappointing $89 million, the future of the franchise remained uncertain.
But nearly a couple of months after being released in the United States, the film hit the big screen in China where it landed $27 million in a single day, making it the 4th best opening day ever for a Hollywood movie in China, just behind Furious 7, The Avengers: Age of Ultron and Transformers: Age of Extinction.
And since then, the Terminator Genisys box office overseas has only gotten bigger, with a total that just might be enough to get a sequel for fans who are still curious to see what happens in this new Terminator timeline. Read More »

As if there were any doubt, Jurassic World dominated the box office this past weekend. However, the film has actually over-performed beyond what experts predicted.
Initially, the Jurassic Park sequel was predicted to land $155 million for the weekend. But the latest update pegs Colin Trevorrow‘s nostalgic dinosaur romp as grabbing over $204 million by the end of the weekend, making it the 2nd highest domestic box office debut of all-time, just behind The Avengers at $207.4 million.

And that kind of success means there will be more dinosaur mayhem on the way, and Chris Pratt is already signed on for the inevitable Jurassic World sequels. More after the jump! Read More »
