Terminator opens big internationally

Terminator opens big internationally

“Terminator Salvation” has opened to huge numbers internationally, with the Sony release declared the third biggest opener of the year (just slightly behind “X-Men Origins : Wolverine” and “Angels and Demons”).

Here in Australia for instance, the McG-directed sequel opened at number one and made a pleasing $5.2 million across 386 screens. The leading market though was the U.K., where the actioner grossed $11.6 million from 900 locations.

The distributor noted that “Salvation” is running 21% ahead of “Terminator 3 : Rise of the Machines” for the same territories at the same point in their release. That flick, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger in a role that lasts for more than 30 seconds, generated a sumly $283 million internationally.

Considering the lack of promotion for this latest “Terminator” downunder – aside from the odd TV spot there were next to no interviews with the cast; even star Sam Worthington, an Australian, was too busy shooting his latest film “Clash of the Titans” to do more than two or three interviews – it’s quite an accomplishment. Seems the brand name did all selling, and the negative reviews haven’t hurt it (just as they didn’t hurt “Wolverine”, which is now the highest-grossing “X-Men” movie ever in Australia) one bit.

Meanwhile rumours have surfaced at BleedingCool that “Terminator 5″ may be set in modern-day London. Apparently John Connor (Christian Bale) hops a time-traveling electro-bubble to Big Ben for some reason or another.
