Mackenzie Davis is the latest to play down any hope of another big screen Terminator outing anytime soon.
The release last year of the sixth movie in the Terminator franchise, Terminator: Dark Fate, was also the third attempt in a row to kickstart a new trilogy of films. The movie wasn’t a cheap one to make, with estimates pointing towards a $200m bill for the film, and that’s before marketing and distribution spend.
The box office came in at just over that amount, and one of the stars of the movie – Mackenzie Davis – has now admitted that the plans for the new trilogy are all but done.
“I really loved the movie and I’m so proud of what we did, but there wasn’t a demand for it”, she told NME. “And to think that there’d be a demand for a seventh film is quite insane. You should just pay attention to what audiences want – and they want new things and I want new things”.
Her words reflect the radio silence from all concerned about the possibility of another movie in the series, and she’s not been contacted about a follow-up to Dark Fate. The strong suspicion now is that for the foreseeable future, the Terminator series has run its course on the big screen.
