io9 “speculates” that the cause of the Terminator Salvation flop isn’t necessarily the director’s fault, the writers fault or Christian Bale’s wooden performance. It was President Obama’s fault*. The above graph (click image to enlarge) shows the performance of past Terminator films in relation to the President in power at the time of release.
Coincidence? I’ll let you decide.
* In case Secret Service or President Obama himself stumble upon this: This claim may not be entirely true.
