A brief history of the Terminator films

The original Terminator film came out of no-where, it was the second film by the young fledgeling director James Cameron and it was fresh and exciting and had a story that was clever and captivated audiences.

Terminator 2

The follow up came 6 years later and with the hype and incredible (for the time) special effects the film was going to be a hit, Arnold Schwarzenegger was at the height of his fame.

Terminator 2: Judgement Day was a massive box office hit, which had a good story, despite some plot holes, with over the top exciting action and it went on to gross over $500 Million globally which adjusted for inflation would be about $1.2 Billion today.

After that the rights to the franchise moved all over the place, then in 2003 we suddenly got Terminator 3: Rise Of THe Machine, and despite the film having fairly good reviews, starring Schwarzenegger and grossing over $400 Million globally it felt more like a stand alone movie than part of the series.

<span class='green'><u><i><b>Terminator Salvation</b></i></u></span>

Then the big trouble started and we got Terminator Salvation in 2009, directed by McG and starring Christian Bale the film reportedly had a very troubled shoot and with Schwarzenegger on California Governor duties he didn't star just appearing as a computer generated Terminator towards the end for a brief second or 2.

Despite this negativity of both the film and the plot it still grossed nearly $400 Million, but the series was stagnating and each film was grossing less and less as each film went on.

The series needed a reboot and in 2015 Schwarzenegger came back and director Alan Taylor tried to get a feeling of the origin film in a reboot that mixed the story from The Terminator changing the time line and creating a new path for the series, but things were too confusing and the film flopped and talk of a followup ended.

So why did Terminator: Dark Fate fail?

It must have seemed like the ideal situation, bring back Schwarzenegger, bring back Linda Hamilton as the original Sarah Connor, and to top it off bring back the original creator James Cameron to write the story and produce the movie, he's too busy directing Avatar 2 so passed that duty off to Deadpool director Tim Miller.

What we have here then is series fatigue, after the 2015 reboot promise the paying public and fans have simply lost hope in trying to get a film which brings back the memory of the first 2 films, Dark Fate does not do this.

Linda Hamilton, Arnie and James Cameron

Then we have the talent, Arnold Schwarzenegger is no where near the star he was in 1991, arguably the biggest, and he is no longer the mean looking muscle machine he once was, then Linda Hamilton who rarely appears in films these days so do audiences know who she is or connect with her? Then James Cameron, after Avatar, which granted was the biggest film ever until this year, is hardly a household name anymore, these elements don't make for a must see movie.

The original 1984 story has now been told again and again in the Terminator movies, how many time can the story of a robot sent from the future to kill someone who is in turn protected by another person/machine sent from the same future, despite how much you mix things up, audiences are clearly bored of this rehashing in each reboot.

Special effects today have to have the WOW factor to sell a movie, Terminator 2 had it, but its harder to do in a day and age when almost anything is possible and sadly Dark Fate simply fails to have it.

The film reportedly had a troubled post production with director Miller and writer/producer Cameron disagreeing over the edit, and it shows, it leaves you feeling like you have just watched a disjointed movie when you leave the cinema.

Finally, and maybe this is a personal thing, the title, Dark Fate is a bit cheesy and doesn't come close to Judgment Day or even Salvation, Rise of the Machines was even a good sub title. A title shouldn't matter but it has got to sell the film, Genisys was not good and Dark Fate is even worse.

End of the franchise?

The movie will struggle to make $300 Million at the global box office, this in a day and age when tentpole movie are expected to take over a Billion is not good enough, the series future is looking bleak and it could be this is the last nail in the coffin.

The Terminator

There is one last hope that might bring the series back! If James Cameron can find a story somewhere within that is different but keeps within the Terminator universe, and if he decides to direct the movie himself we may just get a 7th movie, its a big ask with his involvement in the Avatar films, but this might mean we get a good few year before another movie, no bad thing.

Like many other long running series, Alien for example, the series won't just lie back and enjoy the success it's had, we most likely will see another movie in the series but it will be for another generation, and once we have forgotten the bad box office run of Terminator: Dark Fate.

The threat of the terminator posed no challenge for the Minions this week as the little green beings held on to the top spot with relative ease.

A second week at the top and a weekend gross of £6.2 million brings the total gross of the animated film to £20.9 million after 10 days of release.

Highest new entry of the week is Mr Schwarzenegger's return to the franchise which made him a star, Terminator.

Terminator Genisys enters the chart at number 2 with a weekend gross of £3.7 million, a little low maybe for a highly anticipated film such as this.

In comparison Terminator Salvation made £6.9 million on its debut, Terminator 3: Rise of The Machines took £6.08 million on its debut, so Genisys is running at half those two films.

Jurassic World continues to pull in the numbers and this week brings its total to £53 million.

Other new film this week are Magic Mike XXL at 4, documentary Amy at 5, with £523,192 the highest new entry for a documentary in the UK and Guillaume Tell Royal Opera House at 8.

Reboots being the name of the game, Michael Bay produces a new take on the Turtles story of which the first film was released back in 1990.

Directed by Jonathan Liebesman and starring Megan Fox the new spin makes £4.7 million on it's opening weekend, there is no data for the opening weekend of the 1990 version, but an animated version came out in 2007 called TMNT which tool just less than a million pond on it's debut.

Gone Girl is still doing very well at the box office and this weeks falls into second place with a weekend gross of £2.3 million pound to bring it's total gross in the UK to £14.2 million which places it between Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and Terminator Salvation as the top UK films.

Fifteen years ago
Deep Blue Sea made a debut at the top of the box office chart meaning that American Pie took a tumble into second place.

It was a largely static week this week at the Uk box office, no surprise as there was no big new release and the FIFA World Cup started with England's first game on Saturday night.

With all that going on it was a surprise to see 22 Jump Street retain the top spot with a weekend gross of £2.2 million, this brings the films total to £9.8 million after 10 days of release.

Maleficent, X-Men Days of Future Past and Edge of Tomorrow all stayed in their respective places for another week with only Maleficent taking over a million pound from those 3.

Highest new film of the week goes to Oculus which took a less than expected £413 thousand, although there were previews of How to Train Your Dragon 2 which beat it with £519 thousand, this wont count on this chart and go to their debut in a few weeks.

Other new films this week are
Belle at 7
Devils Knot at 10

This time last year Man of Steel too the top spot on it;s debut weekend of release knocking After Earth to the runner up spot.

Five years ago The Hangover surprised all and hot the top spot on it's debut and knocked Terminator Salvation into second place.

Ten years ago Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban was still the top film and with a fairly still top 5 Connie and Carla was the top new film at 5.

Fifteen years ago The Matrix was the top new film of the week making it's debut at the top knocking Notting Hill into second place.

The biggest of the weeks new releases hits the top of the box office with no current releases able to challenge it.

The 21 Jump Street sequel 22 Jump Street debuts at the top of the box office this week with a weekend take of around £4.8 million.

21 Jump Street was released in March 2012, a tougher time of year for a films release, it debuted at 2 taking £1.5 on it's debut going on to take nearly 10 million over 7 weeks. With better reviews this time around 22 should do better.

Jump Street removes last week top film Maleficent down to the runner up position although it still manages a £2 million weekend with a 10 day gross of £11 million.

Little else doing well on the box office this week, especially Grace of Monaco with enters the box office at 9 with just over £200,000 is takings, the one off D-Day concert did better from far less screens.

This time last year and despite the terrible reviews Will Smith and son debuted at the top with After Earth knocking The Hangover Part III to second place.

Five years ago the Terminator saga continued with Terminator Salvation taking over at the top on it's debut knocking Night at the Museum 2 down to second place.
