Terminator Genisys sequel pulled from release schedule

The Terminator​ franchise​ looks like it isn’t coming back any time soon. 

Paramount Pictures‘ sequel to ​Terminator Genisys was all set to be released on May 19, 2017, but has now been pulled from the company’s release schedule​.

Its slot will be replaced by the Baywatch​ movie, which is set to star Zac Efron and Dwayne Johnson.

The news does not come as a surprise to many, as 2015’s Terminator Genisys flopped at the Western box office and was generally panned by critics and fans alike.
The film, starring ​Arnold Schwarzenegger, Emilia Clarke and ​Jai Courtney​, made $440.6m worldwide, but only took in $90m in the US – with a budget of $155 million.
Despite success in China, it seems even that market isn’t enough to bring Arnie’s T-800 back for more films.

The series was previously reported to have been put on indefinite hold following the disappointing returns.

One thought on “Terminator Genisys sequel pulled from release schedule

  1. I think it’s time we put the franchise to bed for a few years. I think it’s been over-done so many times that even a remake of the original wouldn’t cut it at this stage. Maybe wait until it’s 40th/50th anniversary and do a reboot then.
