Terminator Salvation Opens to $13.3 Million

Warner Bros. Pictures’ Terminator Salvation opened to $13.3 million from 3,530 theaters on Thursday. About $3 million of that came from midnight screenings. The last film in the franchise, Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, had a preview night on July 1, 2003 during which it earned $4 million and then it made $12.4 million the next full day in 3,355 theaters.

The McG-directed film may get close to adding another $60 million over the four-day Friday-to-Monday Memorial Day frame for a total of over $70 million for its first five days.

Starting today, Terminator Salvation is going head-to-head with two more wide releases – Fox’s Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian and Paramount’s Dance Flick.
