While ‘Terminator Genisys’’ reviews were mediocre and its domestic box office haul was underwhelming, it actually went on to gross over $440.6 million across the world, making it the second-highest-grossing film of the franchise.
Despite taking in this amount, Emilia Clarke has now confirmed that she won’t be appearing in any further ‘Terminator’ films, even though it was previously believed that ‘Genisys’ would be the start of a new trilogy that the ‘Game Of Thrones’ actress would lead.
But after being asked by ComingSoon.net whether or not she would make any further ‘Terminator’ films, Emilia Clarke declared, “No. Can I say that? It’s okay. No. Uh-uh. But I have some very different roles coming up.”
The fact that Sarah Connor survived ‘Terminator Genisys’ suggests that Emilia Clarke still had a future as the character. While Connor’s storied history within the franchise suggests that the studio will be keen to keep her involved, so we can expect her to be recast at some point.
We’re still waiting for news on when the ‘Terminator’ sequels will be released. Paramount pulled them both from their schedule after Genisys was deemed a flop because of its measly $89.7 million domestic haul, even though it grossed $350.4 million internationally.
But Arnold Schwarzenegger has confirmed that a sixth film is going to happen, while even Clarke’s comments suggest that they’re still in development. It’s just that she won’t be involved.
