Terminator Salvation may have disappointed with its take at the US box office, but with the movie opening internationally this past weekend, it's looking as if the movie's true audience might lie overseas.
Variety reports that Salvation's $67.5 million opening weekend across 70 territories is the third largest so far this year, behind Angels and Demons and X-Men Origins: Wolverine, potentially proving that international audiences have a really bad taste in movies. The movie was the the most popular release in the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Spain, Russia and Australia, and is less than $10 million away from matching the movie's domestic total even before next weekend's release in Japan. With an international reception like that, suddenly those rumors about setting T5 in London make slightly more sense.
