Yup. T3 as a near-comedy made me really want them to lean full-in for the sequel. It's why I always wished Terminator 4 would have had John Connor played by Jack Black, and the terminator played by Mr. Bean. That would have deserved a whole bunch of sequels!

Guess I had low expectations for T3 because I enjoyed it for what it was and never thought it was going to come close to T1 and T2. With Cameron not involved I just assumed it was going to be a different thing.

For me that one was kind of the crossroads in the series where it could have went a few different ways. I was really, really hoping they would finally next go where I always wanted them to take the Terminator series - into the future war against the machines exactly like what they always showed in those flash forward scenes in T1 and T2. With Terminator Salvation I had high hopes for it that they were starting a trilogy of future war films but sadly that fizzled out and they just went back to rehashing the old formula. They have just really lost their way with the series and totally mismanaged it, and apparently with this new film not being received very well seems its now too far gone.

‘Terminator: Dark Fate’ Brings Franchise Crashing Down as $100 Million Box Office Bomb

Neither Linda Hamilton nor James Cameron's long-awaited returns to the "Terminator" franchise will save "Dark Fate" from being a box office disaster.

Following the disastrous opening of Paramount’s “Gemini Man” in October, the studio got its second major fall release box office bomb this weekend with the dismal opening of “Terminator: Dark Fate.” The new Paramount release had been projected to open in the $40 million ballpark but only grossed $29 million in the U.S. and $102 million oversees, a sign the film’s international box office won’t be enough to save it. Despite solid reviews and the highly-touted returns of James Cameron and Linda Hamilton to the franchise, “Dark Fate” barely opened higher than 2015’s despised “Terminator Genisys” (a $27 million start in the U.S.).

“Dark Fate” cost $185 million to produce. Variety reports the movie’s marketing and distribution budget was in the $80 million and $100 million range, which means the movie would have to gross in the $450 million range in order to turn a profit. For comparison, “Genisys” tapped out at $440 million worldwide in 2015 after opening in the same margin. Box office analysts tell Variety “Dark Fate” is heading to a final worldwide gross between $180 million and $200 million, which would result in a loss of $100 million or more.

Woke, broke, you know the story.

Edit:
Also if it bombs like this, good night sweet prince - we won't see another Terminator for a decade or two.

Good riddance I say.
They have constantly just tried to remake the first one, over and over, and over, and over.......

Change the fricking plot by now. Move past one terminator goes back to kill someone before they can (blank), but a protector has been sent back as well...

Salvation tried to move the needle towards the future war but I think the combination of poor ideas (I believe they wanted to make Marcus the focal point of the movie) and flawed execution kind of messed it up.

On Terminator Salvation:

First half was great. The problem was they turned the last half into action non-sense instead of carrying through what they started. Also, they revealed Marcus as a robot too early... I think they could have ended the movie with that revelation instead of killing him. The heart transplant thing was stupid too.

I think one of the biggest problems is that the first half of the movie is setting up for a slow-burn through the war against the robots, and then they suddenly hatch a plan to end the war tomorrow... kindof throws the pacing and scale way off. Actually alot of the terminator movies fail that way, as they can't decide whether they are stand-alone movies or trying to set up a whole new trilogy... those two goals are very much at odds with each other.

I didn't have high expectations for T3, but at least they did not f*ck around with all the different time lines, and actually treated the story with some dignity. The scene with Dr. Silverman at the cemetery and the Terminator carrying a coffin is gold

These (last two) new movies have so many retcons and the legacy characters dont have the same impact. This new movie literally ERASES everything leading up to it afaik. I thought Salvation was at least passable... The end is kindda dumb...

Likely both...….All this woke nonsense never seems to send the message they want....because its not a message that needs to be sent...but for whatever reason they think "the man" is always holding them back.

And aside from yet another recycled story that happened the previous 3 or 4 times already, fans are actually pissed off at that one thing that happens.

I think you and I have pretty similar thoughts on movies, and similar tastes as well.

Yeah, I remember Cameron saying something about this movie basically ignores all Terminator films after T2. But you're right, too much ret-conning in this series.

Wait, so the short-haired blonde chick is LGBTQLMNOP? How does that logically play into the story? I have no intention of seeing this movie, so I don't mind spoilers, but put them inside tags please.

I guess nobody wanted to see the Cyberdyke Systems LGBT-1000 and a 70 year old Linda Hamilton team up in a heavily played out franchise. Go to Amazon and buy the “Sarah Connor Chronicles” DVD set instead for a feminist retelling of the tale without the obnoxious 2019 liberal wokeness and misandry.

LOL. I honestly don't mind racial or sexual diversity in movies, but it has to feel natural within the plot, not forced just to tick a box on some woke checklist. I gave up watching Designated Survivor season 3 for that very reason.

Hah, I resisted looking at this thread before I watched the movie. Not disappointed.

Please bear with the ranting. Minor spoilers perhaps.

I don't quite get your beef about the "woke" thing, but that movie doesn't work. Period. I saw someone mention the TFA of the Terminator franchise, that's well put. Except it's that (unimaginative, etc.) AND uber cringy. And a rehash of everything interesting in the previous movies (plot, plot devices, gimmicks, fuel cells, boosted humans, aging Terminators, etc.). Jokes fall flat for the most part. Bringing back Linda Hamilton serves no real purpose, except to defeat the "mother of the savior" thingy. I feel that's what they wanted to make the movie all about, but the scene has no depth at all. Meanwhile poor Arnie is reduced to passing beers around.

All in all I don't think I've ever exited a movie theater feeling like I had wasted my time, before this one.

Genisys has gotten much flak and is not "great", granted, the cast doesn't measure up to the originals, but it's an interesting take. It's hardly as bad this one and it's actually fun.
