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 »

There’s a good chance no one has ever thought that they’d like to see a movie that intersects the worlds of films such as Star Wars, Scarface, John Wick, Collateral, Terminator, Trainspotting, Saturday Night Fever and more.

We’ve featured supercuts and trailer remixes before, but this Hell’s Club mash-up is something completely different. We don’t want to give anything away, but Da Silva sets up the video by saying, “There is a place or fictional characters meet.

Earlier this summer, Terminator: Genisys made quite an unceremonious debut at the box office with a $27 million opening and a domestic total of just over $89 million before leaving theaters. The underwhelming numbers left Paramount Pictures uncertain as to what the future would hold for the Terminator franchise, but it had yet to debut in some international territories.
Well, the sci-fi sequel featuring Arnold Schwarzenegger back as the titular cyborg has just made a big splash in China, where studios are really trying to increase their box office appeal, and it just might end up being enough to keep the franchise going.

Okay so Arnold Schwarzenegger has been revisiting a lot of his old Terminator scenes lately, not just in Terminator Genisys which resets and revisits some moments from the first film in different ways, but also in a new commercial for the WWE 2k16 video game. But you’re probably thinking to yourself — “that doesn’t make any sense, why would Arnold Schwarzenegger be promoting a pro wrestling video game?”
Well as it turns out, Arnold Schwarzenegger will be reprising his role as the T-800 model Terminator in WWE 2K16.

Paramount Pictures and Skydance were really hoping that Terminator: Genisys would be a hit to reinvigorate the popular but struggling sci-fi franchise originally launched by James Cameron in 1984. But despite endorsement by the Avatar filmmaker, the flick hasn’t really impressed fans or critics, and with just $278 million at the worldwide box office so far (only just over $81 million of that from the US), it’s not nearly as successful as the studio hoped.
Way before the film even hit theaters, Paramount had set dates for two Terminator sequels to arrive on May 19th, 2017, and June 29th, 2018, with the assumption that they would be shot back-to-back. But now the future of the Terminator franchise is uncertain.

Since it’s summer, we’ve seen our fair share of sequels from The Avengers: Age of Ultron to Terminator: Genisys to Magic Mike XXL and the pseudo-reboot Jurassic World. Audiences have varying opinions on these sequels, sometime saying they’re not as good as the predecessor, others saying that they’re missing something. But what?
Well, a new video essay aims to answer that question by asking “What Makes a Sequel Good?” The video does this by comparing original films like Toy Story and The Terminator to their sequels, Toy Story 2 and Terminator 2: Judgment Day. But those aren’t the only examples, because there’s some bad sequels that need to be discussed too.
