Rentrak, which measures the performance of movies, announced Sunday the worldwide box office estimates for the weekend of July 5, as compiled by the company’s theatrical measurement services.
Paramount Pictures’ Terminator Genisys starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, who has reprised his role as the titular character, could earn just $102 million in the first three days of its release.
In comparison, Jurassic World had recorded the weekend gross of $511.8 million in the first 3 days of its release and has now raked in $1.385 billion in less than a month of its release.
