James Wan’s latest horror film, M3GAN, has proven to be a hit at the box office, with a strong opening weekend of $30.2 million in the US and Canada. The film, which tells the story of a malfunctioning robot doll that becomes a killer, was directed by New Zealand filmmaker Gerard Johnstone and produced by Wan and screenwriter Akela Cooper.
M3GAN has received praise for its unique blend of horror, creepiness, and emotional depth. Wan has said that he wanted to create a killer doll movie for a new generation with the film, and it seems to have resonated with audiences.
The success of M3GAN has reportedly sparked interest in a sequel, with sources saying that one is already in early development. This is exciting news for fans of the film, who will no doubt be eager to see more from the team behind M3GAN.
It’s worth noting that M3GAN was made in New Zealand during the COVID-19 pandemic and had an exclusive theatrical release. This makes its strong performance at the box office all the more impressive.
M3GAN is shaping up to be a memorable addition to the horror genre, and fans will be eagerly anticipating any news of a sequel. In the meantime, those who haven’t seen the film yet will want to check it out while it’s still in theaters.
