M3GAN: Trailer Talk


With advancing AI technology comes new ways to scare moviegoers, whether it’s within the horror or science fiction genre. ‘Black Mirror’ is more than knowledgeable of this subject matter as well as the 2019 remake of ‘Child’s Play’ and, now it looks like writer James Wan (Saw, Malignant) and Blumhouse want to dive into this theme of strange new technologies too.

‘M3GAN’ follows Gemma (Allison Williams – Get Out), a toy company roboticist who suddenly becomes the caretaker of her 8-year-old orphaned niece Cady (Violet McGraw – The Haunting of Hill House). After creating a life-like doll prototype that is programmed to be someone’s best friend, Gemma decides to pair the doll, M3GAN, with her niece which leads to horrific consequences.

What happens when ‘Child’s Play’ is mixed with the passive aggressiveness of GLaDOS from ‘Portal 2’? You get this film, and it looks fantastic! The tone seems to be creepy and tense, with a hint of self-awareness; it knows it’s a ridiculous concept and is having fun with the idea (M3GAN dancing was also an unexpected but welcome visual!).

The slow build-up of the robot protecting Cady to the point of extreme is very well executed in the trailer, and M3GAN looks great. Blended with CGI and an actress (Amie Donald – Netflix’s Sweet Tooth), the film takes the ‘Alita: Battle Angel’ approach with the robot’s appearance, creating a creepy and unnerving appearance for her.

‘M3GAN’ looks creepy and unnerving. The visuals effects to create the robotic character look fantastic and the film looks tense but could also have some comical moments. The January release date is a little worrisome, but I still cannot wait for this. And, don’t worry, the film was not named after me.
