Will the combination of Arnold Schwarzenegger and a young cast help revitalize the Terminator brand? This week BoxOffice takes a closer look at the commercial prospects for Terminator Genisys.

Terminator Genisys
(Paramount)

PROS:

- The franchise has a lot of built-in loyalty thanks to the popularity of the old films.
- Schwarzenegger has not been shy about publicity for the film and we still have a lot of time before the opening.
- There's enough distance between this and Jurassic World.

CONS:

- We're worried that the disappointing performance of Terminator Salvation really hurt the brand
- Schwarzenegger's recent track record at the box office is full of duds.

Check out our predictions for this film and others in the table below.
