‘Terminator Genisys’ Dominates Chinese Box Office

“Terminator Genisys” may have flopped in the North American box office, but in China it’s another story entirely.

Forbes reports the sci-fi franchise reboot debuted to $27.4 million, giving “Genisys” the fourth-largest opening day ever for a U.S. film in that country, behind “Transformers: Age of Extinction” ($30 million),  “Avengers: Age of Ultron” ($33 million), and “Furious 7” ($63 million).

Compare that to the $89 million total in grossed in the United States and Canada. “Terminator Genisys” was the first U.S. movie to debut in China since “Jurassic World” in June, marking the end of the two-month blackout on foreign films, intended to give locally produced features a shot at the box office.

The takeaway? If Paramount Pictures greenlights a sequel to “Terminator Genisys,” we’ll probably owe it all to China.
