Is Arnold Schwarzenegger's Box Office Appeal Lost Forever?

The new Arnold Schwarzenegger flick "Sabotage" has not been so successful at the box office. The man who once set records with seemingly every film release he had has seemed to have lost some of his magic. Was it due to his move to politics in the 2003 California Recall election? Was it due to his age/ Maybe it was due to revelations a little while back that he had an illigitimate child? Whatever the case may be, he doesn't seem to have the same umph he once did.
