M3GAN trailer showcases a lifelike robot turned evil

When will humans stop making lifelike robots and dolls? From the T-800 in The Terminator franchise to David in Prometheus to Annabelle in The Conjuring Universe, the robots seem to always break bad more often than not and turn on their creators. The latest robot set to terrorize humans is an overprotective doll in M3GAN, the first trailer for which  was released moments ago.

Gemma (Allison Williams), a gifted robotic developer, suddenly becomes the guardian of her 8-year-old niece, Cady (Violet McGraw). With no parental experience, Gemma introduces Cady to M3GAN, a robotic doll programmed with artificial intelligence to bond with and care for children. Things start off well as Cady and M3GAN form an instant connection. However, M3GAN begins to strongly defend Cady and the robot resorts to violence against those who question its tactics. It’s up to Gemma to shut down M3GAN or face severe casualties.

The trailer includes M3GAN committing sinister acts like physically assaulting Gemma and wielding a knife toward unsuspecting employees. M3GAN creepily states it won’t let “anyone harm Cady ever again” before firing a nail gun into the hand of a woman and stomping on her head.

M3GAN is directed by Gerard Johnstone, the mind behind 2014’s Housebound, and written by Akela Cooper, who penned 2021’s MalignantMe3GAN is based on a story by Cooper and James Wan, with the latter serving as a producer on the film alongside Jason Blum. The ensemble cast includes Ronny Chieng, Brian Jordan Alvarez, Jen Van Epps, Arlo Green, and Stephane Garneau-Monten.

How did they pull off those amazing action scenes in John Wick: Chapter 4?
John Wick stands behind a car in John Wick: Chapter 4.

In the last decade, the John Wick movies have grown in popularity thanks to their availability on DVD and streaming services. With each successive release, the films have become more adored and commercially successful. While a bulk of that credit goes to lead star Keanu Reeves (who is no stranger to popular action movie franchises), the talented supporting cast, the excellent worldbuilding, and director Chad Stahelski's unique vision, the incredible action scenes are what people talk about the most.

That's never been more true than in John Wick: Chapter 4, which sees our hero survive an ambush in a hotel in Osaka, engage in a knife and ax fight in a rainy nightclub in Berlin, and outrun, outlast, and outkill hundreds of bounty hunters across Paris. Digital Trends talked to two members of Chapter 4's stunt team, Scott Rogers and Stephen Dunlevy, about their past work histories with Reeves, George Miller, and Baz Luhrmann, how they pulled off that insane chase scene at the Arc de Triomphe, and whether or not Reeves is as nice of a guy as everyone thinks he is.
