If there was ever a prime example of how not all reboots are a good thing, then “Terminator: Genysis” is chief among them. While the movie grossed $440 million worldwide, it only made a rough $89 million domestically. Add to that the not-so-great reviews from critics, it’s no wonder it was generally considered a disappointment for Paramount and Skydance Entertainment.

Its sequel, “Terminator 2,” was set for a May 19, 2017 release, but Paramount has pulled it from the schedule, instead replacing it with “Baywatch,” a reboot of the 1990s TV series. The beach film will star Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron.

There’s no word on whether “Genysis” will ever see a sequel released, but maybe Arnold Schwarzenegger can come back from the future and change that.
