The film has been a viral and critical sensation since it was released in theaters. With average ratings of 94 and 78 percent on Rotten Tomatoes from critics and audiences, it seems like the rated PG rating didn't stop it from making a mark on horror enthusiasts around the world.
M3GAN will finally be arriving in China next month, following the country's approval of other Hollywood-made films over the past year, including Avatar: The Way of WaterandBlack: Wakanda Forever. However, not all blockbusters made it to Chinese screens, including Top Gun: Maverick and Black Adam.
A Quiet Place and Annabelle both received clearance from the Chinese government in the past. Happy Death Day from Blumhouse managed to reach Chinese audiences, but it only made $10 million at the Chinese box office.
M3GAN has currently grossed more than $165 million at the global box office and made $30 million during its opening weekend. The Blu-ray release for the film will include an unrated cut, meaning that both the PG and mature versions of the film will be available for those who desire more murderous doll antics. Blumhouse has also announced that the film's two leads, Allison Williams and Violet McGraw, will reprise their roles.
On March 17, M3GAN will be released in Chinese cinemas.
