The film way have made its way to the top of the global box office but this is lower at this point in the films run than the previous film Terminator Genisys which was considered a flop.
This entry in the long running franchise was supposed to be the start of a new trilogy, ironically like the previous film, but with these figures a long post mortem will need to be had.

Despite a slow start the Angelina Jolie sequel movie seems to be holding its own at the box office and this week takes $52.6 Million from 57 countries.
