It seems we are entering another age of the doll. Or perhaps we never left it. From the incredible Chucky series to the upcoming M3GAN, we are in a time full of uncanny manmade creatures with a hunger for blood. And nothing proves that more than the official M3GAN trailer. This is looking to be a camp masterpiece with M3GAN serving Miranda Priestly but actually a homicidal maniac.
In the film:
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 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.
With a story by Akela Cooper and James Wan, the geniuses behind Malignant, there’s no doubt M3GAN is going to be full of spectacle. It’s shaping up to be the perfect way to start off a new year of horror.
Watch the new trailer:
Allison Williams, Violet McGraw, Ronny Chieng, Brian Jordan Alvarez, Jen Van Epps, Lori Dungey, and Stephane Garneau-Monten star in M3GAN.
Gerard Johnstone directed the film with a screenplay written by Akela Cooper. Allison Williams, Mark Katchur, Ryan Turek, Michael Clear, Judson Scott, Adam Hendricks, and Greg Gilreath serve as executive producers. James Wan and Jason Blum produced the film.
M3GAN comes exclusively to theaters on January 6, 2023.
