How to watch M3gan?: M3gan, pronounced as Megan, is a science fiction horror directed by Gerard Johnstone. Produced by Blumhouse Productions and Atomic Monster, the film’s story is written by Akela Cooper and James Wan (the creator of The Conjuring Universe).
M3gan follows an eponymous artificially intelligent doll who develops self-consciousness and becomes hostile to anyone who comes in between her and a human friend. The film’s title, M3gan stands for Model 3 Generative Android.
When James Wan’s Atomic Monster Productions was brainstorming possible story ideas for a film, he picked the story about a killer doll, and that’s how the film’s concept came to light. We have already seen James’ imagination in 2014’s Annabelle, which is also about a killer doll.
He shared his inspiration for the story’s idea: “Pretty much the concept is about embracing technology too much and relying too much on it. And what happens with technology runs amok. It’s a commentary on our world, and it feels relevant.”
Upon release, M3gan has garnered positive acclaim from film critics and is lauded for its campy blend of horror and satirical elements. The viewers have particularly raved about the film’s humor and the unhinged performances of the cast members. The movie has already grossed over $45 million worldwide, which is against the estimated budget of $12 million.
The titular character in the film is played by two actors – Amie Donald and Jenna Davis, who provide the voices for the AI doll.
Apart from that, M3gan has a solid cast, including Allison Williams as Gemma, Violet Mc Graw as Cady, and Michael Saccente as Greg.
Other supporting cast members includes Brian Jordan Alvarez, Jen Van Epps, Ronny Chieng, Arlo Green, Jack Cassidy, Kira Josephson, Lori Dungey, and Stephane Garneau.
