Greetings, folks! I’m in the desolate ruins of New York City, visiting the former Gawker offices for the first time (honestly, it’s hard to tell what was destroyed in the apocalypse and what is just unfinished construction).

Skynet Wins After All: Terminator Genisys Is a Monster Hit in China!

Terminator Genisys was a flop in the United States, making just $89 million here.
