â€œTerminator Salvationâ€ has opened to huge numbers internationally, with the Sony release declared the third biggest opener of the year (just slightly behind â€œX-Men Origins : Wolverineâ€ and â€œAngels and Demonsâ€).
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 â€œSalvationâ€ is running 21% ahead of â€œTerminator 3 : Rise of the Machinesâ€ 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 â€œTerminatorâ€ downunder â€“ 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 â€œClash of the Titansâ€ to do more than two or three interviews â€“ itâ€™s quite an accomplishment. Seems the brand name did all selling, and the negative reviews havenâ€™t hurt it (just as they didnâ€™t hurt â€œWolverineâ€, which is now the highest-grossing â€œX-Menâ€ 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.
