She’s more than a toy. She’s family. And now she’s Unrated. Universal Pictures Home Entertainment announced today that the M3GAN Unrated Edition (buy now at Amazon) is coming to Digital on February 24 and Blu-ray and DVD on March 21. The film will also be available to stream on Peacock February 24.
Presented by Universal Pictures and Blumhouse and produced by Atomic Monster in association with Divide/Conquer, M3GAN has crossed $167 million at the global box office.
M3GAN is produced by Atomic Monster’s James Wan (Saw, Insidious, The Conjuring, Anabelle) and Blumhouse’s Jason Blum (Halloween franchise, The Invisible Man, The Black Phone) and directed by Gerard Johnstone (Housebound).
The M3GAN Unrated Edition delivers more distressing violence and profanity and features never-before-seen bonus content including a breakdown of the creation of M3GAN and behind-the-scenes featurettes showcasing the film’s complex stunts and gory deaths.
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 (Allison Williams, Get Out), M3GAN can listen and watch and learn as she becomes friend and teacher, playmate and protector, for the child she is bonded to.
As Gemma faces pressure at work from her boss (Ronny Chieng, Shang-Chi and The Legend of the Ten Rings) to deliver a finished version of M3GAN, she suddenly becomes the unprepared caretaker of her newly orphaned 8-year-old niece, Cady (Violet McGraw, The Haunting of Hill House).
Gemma decides to pair the M3GAN prototype with Cady in an attempt to resolve both problems—a decision that will have unimaginable consequences.
