LOS ANGELES (AP) (11/03/19)- Despite generally favorable reviews and the return of star Linda Hamilton and producer James Cameron, "Terminator: Dark Fate" has opened well below expectations at the box office.
Studios on Sunday estimate that "Dark Fate" earned only $29 million from over 4,000 North American locations.
The film from Paramount Pictures cost a reported $185 million to produce.
It was enough to win the top spot at the box office, however.
Second place went to "Joker," with $13.9 million, and place to "Maleficent: Mistress of Evil" which added $12.1 million.
Focus Features' Harriet Tubman biopic "Harriet" performed better than expected, earning $12 million from just over 2,000 theaters to take fourth place.
And Edward Norton's "Motherless Brooklyn" opened in ninth to $3.7 million.
