The horror thriller M3GAN will arrive in a new unrated version with extras on digital Feb. 24 and on Blu-ray and DVD March 21 from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment.
M3GAN and its unrated version will also stream exclusively on Peacock beginning Feb. 24.
The film, presented from Universal Pictures and Blumhouse and produced by Atomic Monster in association with Divide/Conquer, has crossed $167 million at the global box office.
M3GAN is produced by horror vets — Atomic Monster’s James Wan (Saw, Insidious, The Conjuring, Anabelle) and Blumhouse’s Jason Blum (“Halloween” franchise, The Invisible Man, The Black Phone) — and is directed by Gerald Johnstone (Housebound).
The M3GAN Unrat3d Version delivers more 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.
The thriller follows M3GAN, a marvel of artificial intelligence and 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.
