"Terminator Genisys" was expected to kick off a new trilogy of Terminator movies.

It was not a good weekend for Arnold Schwarzenegger to be back at the box office.

"Terminator Genisys," the fifth film in the franchise, grossed just $44.2 million over the five-day holiday weekend.

In three days, the film made $28.7 million.

Remember, it was less than a month ago that the fourth installment of "Jurassic World" opened to a surprising $209 million.

A week after that, Disney and Pixar's "Inside Out" had a $90 million opening weekend.

"Genisys" had the worst opening of nearly all the "Terminator" movies.

MovieRelease dateOpening Weekend (3-day)BudgetWorldwide Gross
"The Terminator"10/26/84$4 million$6.4 million$78.4 million
"Terminator 2: Judgment Day"7/3/91$31.8 million$102 million$519 million

"Terminator Salvation"5/21/09$42.6 million$200 million$371.4 million
"Terminator Genisys"7/1/15$28.7 million$155 million$129.7 million so far

Mind you, the original "Terminator" film opened in 1984.

"Terminator Genisys" had the widest release of any "Terminator" film opening in 3,758 theaters. The film was made on an estimated $155 million budget.

The film is Schwarzenegger's fifth movie in a row to opening under $30 million in a pure three-day box-office weekend proving American audiences are pretty much over the "Terminator" actor.

Paramount, which released the film, appeared to be aware of it, focusing a big portion of its publicity ahead of the domestic release overseas. So it's little surprise the film opened to $85 million in foreign grosses. Schwarzenegger's still a star - just internationally.

Instead, fans continued to head out to see Universal's "Jurassic World" and Disney and Pixar's "Inside Out."

For the fourth weekend in a row, the fourth film in the dinosaur franchise starring Chris Pratt has led the box-office weekend.

Meanwhile "Inside Out" has now made $363 million worldwide.
