It looks like Arnold Schwarzenegger won't be back anytime soon as the Terminator sequels have been put on 'indefinite hold' due to poor box office performance of Terminator Genisys.
Lukewarm to negative reviews (it currently holds just a 26% rotten rating on Rotten Tomatoes), resulted in a disappointing domestic box office of $89m.
Despite a stellar cast boasting the return of Arnie as the legendary T-800 as well as Game of Thrones' Emilia Clarke, Oscar winner JK Simmons and Jason Clarke it was criticised for lacklustre performances.
The nonsensical time-travel plot also drew heavy criticism.
Worldwide it fared a little better at $440m, thanks in the main to China ($122m) but in the US it could actually lose money since it cost $150m to make.
The Hollywood Reporter says the series has been put on "indefinite hold" so the two planned sequels and TV spin off have been shelved.
