Top horror studio Blumhouse is gearing up for a sequel after the success of one their latest projects, M3GAN. Released on January 6, the movie has been received well by audiences. In its opening weekend, the robot monster doll flick raked in more than $30 million, and has so far grossed $61 million plus at the domestic box office overall. M3GAN 2.0 is set to hit theaters in 2025.
Regal Theaters Take a Hit
You might have to slash your local Regal Cinemas theater off the list of places to catch the M3GAN sequel in a couple of years. The chain owned by Cineworld, which is the second-largest theater operator in the U.S., announced that 39 locations are set to close. The company filed for bankruptcy in September 2022 after a decline in box office sales amid the coronavirus pandemic made it difficult to keep up with today's rising rents.
