Paramount pulls Terminator Genisys sequel off release schedule

Posted on

The next film in the Terminator franchise has been taken off Paramount’s release calendar, the studio confirmed Wednesday.

Terminator 2 had been scheduled to arrive in theaters on May 19, 2017, but Paramount has now set Dwayne Johnson’s Baywatch film on that release date.

The most recent Terminator film, Terminator: Genisys, debuted last summer and went on to make a relatively weak $89.8 million at the box office over its 11-week run (for context, 1991’s Terminator 2: Judgement Day was that year’s top-grossing film with a domestic total of $204.8 million). It didn’t fare too well with critics, either: The movie has a 25 percent on Rotten Tomatoes.

Terminator 2 does not yet have a new release date.
