Paramount have removed the planned sequel for ‘Terminator: Genisys’ from their release calendar for 2017 and replaced it with the ‘Baywatch’ movie.
Given how poorly ‘Genisys’ was received by both fans and critics. This shouldn’t really come as a surprise.
Paramount and Skydance Entertainment’s Terminator 2 was set to hit theaters May 19, 2017. But it has been left to drown by ‘Baywatch’, which has replaced it.
‘Terminator: Genisys’ was widely viewed as a disappointment. Genisys, which opened last summer, earned roughly $440 million worldwide, including only $89 million in North America. Skydance spearheaded the relaunch of the iconic franchise.
Apparently Paramount is hugely enthused by their ‘Baywatch’ movie, which stars Dwayne Johnson in a similar role to that, which was originated by David Hasselhoff in the television series, which helped define the television landscape of the late 80s and early to mid 90s.
Baywatch centers on the leader (Johnson) of an elite group of lifeguards who is forced to team up with a young, hotshot former Olympian (Zac Efron) to save their beloved bay.
