James Wan’s next horror flick is titled M3gan. This appears to be his version of Child’s Play, only instead of a plastic doll, she is a highly advanced android that, according to this new teaser, is very frightening. Allison Williams, Violet McGraw, Ronny Chieng, Brian Jordan Alvarez, Jen Van Epps, Lori Dungey, and Stephane Garneau-Monten are featured in the film. The film is directed by Gerard Johnstone from a script by Akele Cooper and a scenario by Cooper and Wan. Check out the trailer for this insane film below.
M3gan Synopsis, Trailer, and Release date
“She is not only a toy. She is a member of the family. James Wan, the director of the Saw, Insidious, and The Conjuring series, and Blumhouse, the producer of the Halloween flicks, The Black Phone, and The Invisible Man, have created a terrifying new face. M3GAN is an artificial intelligence marvel, a lifelike doll designed to be a child’s best friend and a parent’s best ally.
Designed by the clever toy business roboticist Gemma (Allison Williams from getting Out), M3GAN can listen, observe, and learn as she becomes the child’s companion, teacher, playmate, and protector.”
“Gemma is confused and unprepared to be a parent when she becomes the guardian of her orphaned 8-year-old niece, Cady (Violet McGraw, The Haunting of Hill House). Under immense pressure at work, Gemma chooses to link her M3GAN prototype with Cady in an attempt to tackle both issues; this choice will have unfathomable repercussions.
M3GAN is directed by award-winning director Gerard Johnstone (Housebound) from a script by Akela Cooper (Malignant, The Nun 2) based on a tale by Akela Cooper and James Wan. The picture is produced by Jason Blum and James Wan.”
I can freely confess that certain portions of this trailer look…not so great. However, M3gan herself gives me the creeps, and the supporting cast is also excellent. I am willing to provide James Wan with the benefit of the doubt. The release date is January 13.
