Terminator: Dark Fate is out now, but it looks like the film won't be able to break even. It's expected the movie will make a loss of around $120 million by the end of its theatrical run.

As reported by The Hollywood Reporter, Terminator: Dark Fate could lose the studio $120 million. It could go up as high as $130 million or down to $110 million if it holds better overseas.

Skydance Media, Paramount Pictures and Disney's own 20th Century Fox each put 30% to the $185 million budget. Deadline reported earlier the film needed to earn over $470 million just to break even.

The movie may not even get near to $470 million as it has only earned $123.6 million worldwide so far. Terminator Genisys earned $440 million worldwide mainly thanks to it grossing $100 million over in China.

Dark Fate has only earned $28 million in China so it won't even get near to $100 million. At this rate, the movie could be one of the lowest earning Terminator movies of all time!

Analysts predict that the failure of Dark Fate means studios will give the Terminator franchise a huge rest. The franchise failed to spawn trilogies before since Terminator Salvation and Terminator Genisys both underwhelmed at the Box Office in 2009 and 2015 respectively.

Terminator: Dark Fate is out now. The movie is directed by Tim Miller with stars Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton back. James Cameron is also back as one of the writers and producers.
