Till now I haven’t posted anything–that I can recall, at any rate–from the upcoming Alan Taylor-directed followup to Terminator: Salvation, Terminator: Genisys.
Though I have a reason: Namely, I expect this movie to premiere with a small splash, and quickly vanish without a trace.
It’s less a question of franchise fatigue that ham-handedness on the part of the people who’s been in charge since James Cameron’s reign. That being said, Savation didn’t do too badly–earning just over $373 million on a $200 million budget–though I get the feeling that Genisys isn’t coming cheap, so it could be a case of throwing good money after bad.
Though oddly enough, I don’t mind the spelling of ‘Genesis,’ which is better than the monstrosity that is ‘Syfy (the name, not the network).’
