The much-anticipated horror flick M3GAN will release tomorrow (January 6) in the USA. Directed by Gerard Johnstone, the horror movie has been produced by Jason Blum and James Wan while the screenplay is based on a story by Akela Cooper and James Wan.
Starring Ronny Chieng, Brian Jordan Alvarez, Jen Van Epps, Stephane Garneau-Monten, and others, M3GAN is based on a killer doll that starts harming people after a horrible experiment goes wrong. When the first trailer for the movie came out in October 2022, it became a viral sensation, with comparisons being made to other scary dolls like Chucky and Anabelle.
The film is currently playing in local cinemas.
What is M3gan about?

M3GAN’s story is about an AI experiment gone horribly wrong. The name ‘M3GAN’ is an abbreviation for Model 3 Generative Android. The robot is supposed to act as a guardian to a child but the autonomous learning of the AR malfunctions with M3GAN, turning her into a life-threatening machine for everyone except the child she’s supposed to protect.
What M3GAN’s first-week debut looks like
The horror movie is set to generate a whopping USD 17 million to USD 20 million from 3,400 North American theatres in its opening weekend. These ticket sales would be a really good start because modestly budgeted horror films usually cost around USD 12 million to produce, as reported by Variety.

Having seen #M3gan twice and loved it, every uninformed hater I see saying it's going to be bad has made me unreasonably angry. Glad the reviews are off to a good start, showing what I've known to be true for weeks: This movie fucking rules. The campy tone is perfectly executed. pic.twitter.com/y1lyDl821m

#M3GAN delivers our next great horror icon. The first film in a long time to make the best out of the "killer doll" story while still carving its own tasteful personality.
It's the perfect balance of eeriness & dark humor. Like Malignant, the film rightfully earns all the camp. pic.twitter.com/gTppN8NXez
