Terminator Sequels on Hold Indefinitely



Fans hoping for more Terminator movies are going to be disappointed that all of the sequels to Genisys are now on hold indefinitely. Originally planned as a trilogy with a possible TV series, it seems like the poor performance of Genisys has killed the franchise for the time being.

THR has an article about financiers try to produce movies, and Terminator is brought up:

“Terminator: Genisys had opened to a soft $27 million domestic, and the article suggested that 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.”

I actually really liked Terminator: Genisys and felt that it was the best version of Terminator 3. So I was hoping to see the next two movies in the trilogy, but I guess that won’t be happening now…
