Universal has released a new trailer for director Gerard Johnstone’s upcoming horror M3GAN, which you can watch below.
The James Wan-produced film stars Allison Williams as Gemma, a roboticist who finds herself as her orphaned nieces caregiver. Unprepared for parenthood, she gives the young girl a life-like doll designed to both a child’s greatest companion and a parent’s greatest ally, until it takes on a life of its own.
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.
M3GAN features a cast that includes Allison Williams, Violet McGraw, Ronny Chieng, Brian Jordan Alvarez, Jen Van Epps, Lori Dungey, and Stephane Garneau-Monten.
M3GAN arrives in cinemas on January 13th.
