by Robert Cain for China Film Biz
Once again Chinese audiences have stepped up to support a Hollywood movie that badly needed an international boost, in this case the $155 million budgeted Terminator Genisys. The franchise reboot, which sees the return of Arnold Schwarzenegger to the 31 year-old sci-fi series after a 12-year hiatus, took in $26 million (166.1 million RMB) in its first day of release on Sunday, including midnight screenings.
