The China release of Terminator: Genisys has been scheduled for August 23. Exciting news, because this will be the first major Hollywood release since Jurassic World, which landed on June 19, and it arrives during what is deemed blackout month, the period in which the government likes to fend off foreign productions so as to bolster box office revenues for homegrown films.
Also on the way will be Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation on September 8, Minions on September 13, and Pixels on September 15. This is a pretty stacked line up of new films on their way. Much better than the sad titles we’ve seen lately, like the already on Netflix Good People. So, plenty of that Hollywood magic will be coming to theaters soon to entertain the whole family.
Before the short blackout period, Hollywood was enjoying a great run in China this summer, with Furious 7, Avengers: Age of Ultron, and Jurassic World doing great at the box office.
Inside Out and Fantastic Four are also expected to get release dates in the not-so-distant future.
