There is no doubt that beyond the absolute dominance of Avatar 2: The Way of Water at the global box office, M3GAN or MEGAN became another global sensation. The horror film has crossed $100 million worldwide and is now making its way from theaters to digital screens. On which streaming and online platforms to watch M3GAN?
An interesting fact about the film, is that M3GAN was originally scheduled to be released directly to Peacock. Without embargo, thanks to the positive reactions recorded in the test screenings, it was decided that the film had its premiere in cinemas, and the tests did not fail in the acceptance of the public.
M3GAN is a collaboration between Blumhouse, Atomic Monster and Universal. In 2020, it was announced that AMC Theaters would allow Universal films to have a 17-day release window before moving to digital purchase (or video-on-demand).
Without embargo, films distributed by Universal, such as M3GAN, have historically been available on the studio’s streaming platform, peacock. With that in mind, fans should expect M3GAN to hit Peacock closer to the end of February, 45 days after its theatrical release.
M3GAN has the story of a robot doll programmed to be the best company of a boy or girl and the best ally of a father or mother. Designed by the brilliant robotics specialist of a toy company, M3GAN can listen, watch and learn as it becomes a friend and teacher, companion and protector, to the child it is attached to. When Gemma becomes the caretaker of her orphaned 8-year-old niece, Cady, Gemma feels insecure and not ready to be a mother. Under a lot of pressure at work, Gemma decides to join her M3GAN prototype with Cady in an attempt to solve all the problems, a decision that will not have the best results.
The main cast includes Allison Williams, Amie Donald, Amy Usherwood, Arlo Green and Jack Cassidy, in a long cast.
