How two novice producers came to own the Terminator movie franchise

Budget for “Terminator Salvation”: About $200 million, funded primarily with a $60 million advance from Warner Bros. for domestic distribution rights and $100 million from Sony Pictures for international

All it takes is money… lots of it!!

That’s a lot of tickets to sell to make back 200mill (not counting the lawsuit outcomes). On a related note, Night at the Museum II surpassed the latest Terminator at the box office this last weekend. Is that a reflection of this latest installment of the Terminator series’ quality (a friend recently gave it a C+ and described it as “one bullet followed by a bigger bullet, and that was followed by an even bigger bullet.”) or just that family movies have a bigger market?
