After our recent news report that, according to Forbes, it looks like Terminator 2: Judgment Day 3D may turn out to be a box-office disappointment in the United States, some Terminator fans became furious! They wondered how could a news site judge box-office disappointment with a movie in such a limited release? T2 in 3D is only playing in 463 theaters for crying out loud!
Some Terminator fans have expressed concern over the limited amount of promotion they have seen for the 3D theatrical re-release of Terminator 2: Judgment Day 3D. A few avid fans in the United States have even contacted us with concerns that friends and co-workers were completely unaware that T2 was being theatrically released this weekend, until they told them so. So is it a surprise that Forbes is now reporting that T2 “bombed” in the United States?
When Terminator Genisys was theatrically released the summer of 2015, the movie received backlash from both critics and the public. While some critics like Tom Long at the Detroit News said ‘Terminator Genisys’ was “the first fully worthy successor to Cameron’s original films” and Terminator fans polled at Skynet’s Army overwhelmingly ranked it as their third favorite Terminator film, the majority of critics and public lampooned it (and its actors), making Genisys the unofficial punching bag of 2015.
