Terminator Dark FateWill TERMINATOR: DARK FATE fall short?
By E.C. McMullen Jr.
How can this possibly come as a surprise?

After Warner Bros. and Sony Pictures' joint stewardship of THE TERMINATOR franchise produced TERMINATOR 3, TERMINATOR SALVATION, and the final nail in the coffin (The Return of Arnold Schwarzenegger!) TERMINATOR GENISYS, who thought another terminator movie (The Return of Linda Hamilton!) could possibly have a huge opening weekend?

What? Because James Cameron was back as one of EIGHT writers and two Producers? At a time when we all know he is focused on directing not one but two Disney Fox movies (AVATAR 2, AVATAR 3) right now?

Was the poor showing of TERMINATOR SALVATION not a warning? Did the worse showing of TERMINATOR GENISYS not underline that poor showing? And yet before advertising, WB committed a $185 million dollar budget to DARK FATE. For that much Jason Blum could have brought back two billion dollars in profit spread over 10 movies and gave you back your $85 mil.

So this movie likely won't have a big front end (Khee!!!). But if it's going to be a success at all it won't be because of Schwarzenegger, Hamilton, or Cameron, but director Tim Miller. Tim showed he had what it takes to make a TERMINATOR movie with his animated ROCKFISH back in 2003. He cemented his concepts in stone with DEADPOOL. How much control the studio let Tim have is unknown to me, but if this movie is ever going to have a big back end (Khee! Heee!!!), its going to be because of how Tim was allowed to shoot it.
