The 'Terminator' franchise is "re-adjusting" after 'Terminator: Genisys' disappointing box office returns and producers won't rush into making a sixth movie

The 'Terminator' franchise is "re-adjusting" after 'Terminator: Genisys' disappointing box office returns.

The movie series - starring Arnold Schwarzenegger - failed to impress with its recent fifth installment and Skydance Productions admitted some changes need to be made.

While speaking at The Wrap's annual media leadership conference, TheGrill, Skydance Media Chief Creative Officer Dana Goldberg said: "I wouldn't say on hold, so much as re-adjusting.

"We're ultimately happy with overall worldwide numbers. Do I wish we would have done better domestically? Absolutely. Happily, we live in the world where the domestic number had a level of importance 10 or 15 years ago - I'm not saying it's not important, it is - but we have to play to a worldwide market. In terms of 'Terminator', the worldwide market paid attention, but we're not taking the domestic number lightly."

The movie only made a disappointing $90 million in the United States.

And she admitted that the company will not be rushing into making a new movie, explaining: "We are not going to begin production at the beginning of next year. It would be silly to not have to worry about what audiences have to say."
