Terminator: Dark Fate Manage To Make 500 Million Dollars At The Box Office?
I was expecting this movie to not do that well due to all the bad reviews and also due to what they did with John Connor, but it performing THIS bad is beyond my imagination. I thought that this movie would get at least 800 million dollars overall and would make more than this at the box office despite it being so bad simply because it is a part of the Terminator franchise but it doesn’t seem so. And in fact, I am not sure on whether this movie will even reach 500 million dollars or not and that’s why today I am going to discuss about it in this short video and give my predictions and my take on it. So let’s begin! Okay so first let’s talk about the marketing of this movie. It was sold as the movie that is going to wipe out the trash sequels and “correct” the franchise but while that sometimes may be a good idea, that can also backfire, just like it did now.
When you are that confident and the movie in the end turns out to be a bad movie then it can really upset people and play with their expectations. Granted, this movie was pretty good for many people and this movie even has a positive Rotten Tomatoes rating but the Imdb and Metacritic scores for it are not that great. And the Rotten Tomatoes rating is also slowly degrading to the 60s. Anyways, back to the marketing, the trailers, tv spots and posters of this movie were advertised everywhere. Like if I tried to watch a Youtube video, a TV spot of this movie would pop up before it or if I tried to read an article on the Internet a poster of this movie would appear as an advertisement.
They did invest a lot for the marketing of this movie which makes it flopping even worse for them. And what I told were just two examples of the trailers and all being everywhere. It’s pretty weird though, that the trailers have less than 25 million views even though they were advertised so much and even though they were trailers of Terminator movies. I guess people knew that there was no point in having hope and just decided to not watch the trailers since they knew that this movie would be trash anyways.
We should also keep in mind that even the trailers upset many people due to the like and dislike ratio and I guess they could sense a bad movie coming just from seeing the trailer so many of them didn’t see the movie even after seeing the trailers. I mean, to be fair, the trailers were awesome in my opinion but it’s pretty cool to see that some people have the ability to sense a bad movie just from the trailers. Okay so this movie is performing just like Terminator: Genisys or Genesis or a little more than that.
Genisys performed below 500 million dollars but, I think that this movie will actually manage to break the 500 million dollar mark. Why? Because even though it’s underperforming, it did well enough to make 500 million dollars overall and also because it is receiving better ratings and better reviews than Genesys did.
It is also rated R which will attract some fans of R Rated movies or Terminator fans who wanted the franchise to return to the R rating. However, I don’t think it will go far beyond that and at maximum, I think that this can make 600 million. AT MAXIMUM. So yeah, I think that this movie overall is going to make a little over 500 million but it’s really not going to do any better than that.
