Neither Linda Hamilton nor James Cameron's long-awaited return to the Terminator program save Dark Fate from a catastrophe.
Paramount  After the catastrophic opening of Paramount's "Gemini Man" in October, the studio experienced its second major cash bomb this weekend with the grim opening of "Terminator: Dark Fate". It had been planned that the new Paramount release will cost 40-million Dollar stadium, but only grosses $ 29 million in the US and $ 102 million overseas, and despite solid reviews and the much-noticed return of James Cameron and Linda Hamilton to the franchise, Dark Fate barely above the despised "Terminator Genisys" of 2015 (a startpr ice of $ 27 million in the US).
"Dark Fate" The production cost 185 million dollars. Variety reports that the film's marketing and distribution budget was between $ 80 and $ 100 million, which means the film must gross in the $ 450 million range to make a profit. By comparison, "Genisys" generated $ 440 million in sales worldwide in 2015 after opening with the same profit margin. Box office analysts tell Variety that "Dark Fate" will achieve a final worldwide gross profit of between $ 180 and $ 200 million, which would result in a loss of $ 100 million or more.
