In connection with yesterday's box office the foreign numbers for this weekend are officially in with Terminator Salvation coming out on top. HR reports the film landed in 1st place in all but four of its 70 markets by pulling another $67.5 million on 8,325 screens across the globe.  Up until now the fourth film was only playing limited runs in some smaller territories.

According to its international distributor, Sony Pictures, the film is running 21% ahead of the comparable overseas boxoffice compiled by its predecessor, 2003's Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines. The latest title's weekend is the third-highest weekend foreign gross of 2009.

"Terminator's" leading market was the U.K., where it grossed $11.6 million from 900 locations. Russia produced $8 million from 786 sites, the 10th-biggest weekend opener to date for a Hollywood title there. France came up with $6.3 million from 752 spots, Germany provided $6 million from 981 locations, Australia generated $5.2 million from 386 screens and Spain contributed $4.9 million from 563 locations.

"Terminator's" early foreign gross is $97.2 million; with $4.4 million from paid previews in Japan factored in, the cume is $101.6 million. Sony's share of the weekend total was $65 million. With domestic and foreign combined, the fourth film has a worldwide gross of $207.0 million.

Yea, I think it's a trilogy. Hope they get better as they go.

I read over the weekend a rumor that part 5 is going to have Connor time traveling to 2011 London. That they'll introduce a scientist which will be the basis for the T-1000 and we may even have the human harvesters making a time trip as well.

I thought Salvation was ok but if this is true I don't think I'm going to like it. I'm tired of all the time travel and how convoluted the story has become. More and more I wish they'd stop at 2. Hope I'm proven wrong.

Salvation is part one of three, I read it on a news site.

Wiseguy 6/8/2009 8:26:09 AM

There are 2 more on the way.  Bale signed a 3 pic deal.  I haven't seen it and I probably won't.

You guys are cracking me up with the news bits. Yes, we've made clear over the past year that this is the first of a planned trilogy with Bale signed on for three. That's been confirmed since last year's Comic Con. Yes, McG talked last month about his idea to travel back in time for the planned sequel. But it should be noted that the time travel bit isn't set in stone. McG can sometimes get carried away with his press statements. (See McG vs. Bay in a dick sizing contest comments for an example.)

We know Bale will be back but will McG?  Would the studio hand the property over to someone else if T4 doesn't reak even?  Just wonderin'.

Also, McG's been saying before the film's release that they have to wait and see how this one performs before they go ahead with the other sequels in the "planned" trilogy.  After seeing T4, I was hoping that the movie would flop, but it keeps inching along and with the money it's pulled in overseas and the cash once it hits DVD, I'm sure the WB will have made enough back to warrant greenlightling the "planned" sequels.
