After three failed attempts to profit on the beloved Terminator 2 Judgment Day, fans are telling studios they are over the franchise. Even with original creator James Cameron’s influence deeply rooted into this film, it appears that the franchise is damaged goods at this point.
Per The Wrap:
Part of the reason for “Dark Fate” underperforming might be that its core audience is continuing to turn out for “Joker,” which is nearing $300 million domestic and $900 million worldwide with an estimated $13.5 million grossed in its fifth weekend. “Maleficent: Mistress of Evil” is just behind with $13 million in its third weekend.
