TERMINATOR: DARK FATE Director Tim Miller Reflects On The Movie At Comic-Con: "I Was Wrong...[It] Tanked"

Terminator: Dark Fate director Tim Miller (Deadpool) has reflected on attempting to reboot the franchise, admitting that he was wrong with his approach to the material. Find his full comments here...

After directing 2016's Deadpool, Tim Miller became one of Hollywood's most in-demand filmmakers. After creative differences led to the filmmaker walking away from that movie's sequel, he set his sights on rebooting the Terminator franchise after the disastrous Terminator Genisys a few years earlier.

Terminator: Dark Fate ended up earning positive reviews and praise from fans, but it didn't make an impact at the box office. With only $62 million in North America and $261 million worldwide, the blockbuster was deemed a flop and seemingly put the iconic franchise back on the shelf. That's something which isn't lost on Miller based on comments made during Comic-Con.

"Terminator’s an interesting movie to explore, but maybe we’ve explored it enough," the director said (via Deadline). "I went in with the rock hard nerd belief that if I made a good movie that I wanted to see, it would do well. And I was wrong. It was one of those f**king Eureka moments in a bad way because the movie tanked."

When the interviewer suggested the movie didn't tank, Miller responded by saying, "Then why aren’t people returning my phone calls?"

On a brighter note, he'd add: "I think if you make a lower cost Terminator movie,  a good director and movie star could make it great. It could be made with sock puppets and it could be awesome. I’d like to do a Terminator CG."

While a Terminator video game is in the works, we don't know what the plan is for the franchise in theaters. It seems likely that it will be put to one side for the foreseeable future, though now could be a good time to bring it back to television as a streaming platform could be the perfect way to put a fresh spin on the war between man and machine.

It's a real shame that the series has been on the decline since Terminator 2: Judgement Day was released way back in 1991, but a full-blown reboot with no links to the original seems like the best possible option at this stage.
