M3GAN opens nationwide Friday, 13th January
She’s more than just a toy. She’s part of the family.
From the most prolific minds in horror—JAMES WAN, the filmmaker behind the Saw, Insidious and The Conjuring franchises, and BLUMHOUSE, the producer of the Halloween films, The Black Phone and The Invisible Man—comes a fresh new face in terror.
M3GAN is a marvel of artificial intelligence, a life-like doll programmed to be a child’s greatest companion and a parent’s greatest ally. Designed by brilliant toy-company roboticist Gemma (Get Out’s ALLISON WILLIAMS), M3GAN can listen and watch and learn as she becomes a friend and teacher, playmate and protector, for the child she is bonded to.
When Gemma suddenly becomes the caretaker of her orphaned 8-year-old niece, Cady (VIOLET MCGRAW, The Haunting of Hill House), Gemma’s unsure and unprepared to be a parent. Under intense pressure at work, Gemma decides to pair her M3GAN prototype with Cady in an attempt to resolve both problems—a decision that will have unimaginable consequences.
As M3GAN and Cady develop an unbreakable bond, Gemma grows more and more terrified that the very creation she invented to help Cady heal is learning at an exponential rate…and that M3GAN may be perceiving “threats” to Cady that do not exist.
Produced by JASON BLUM p.g.a. and JAMES WAN p.g.a., M3GAN is directed by award-winning filmmaker GERARD JOHNSTONE (Housebound)
