M3GAN has gone viral
As a result of M3GAN’s immense popularity in theaters, the AI has now been integrated into the promotional materials for the Harry & Meghan documentary on Netflix.
A poster for the film featuring M3GAN instead of Markle holding hands with Prince Harry has been shared online by Jason Blum, CEO of Blumhouse. In this strange cut, M3GAN can be seen amid her now-famous dance number from the film. The revision rapidly gained traction among Blum’s fans, with some joking that this is the kind of crossover they’d love to see realized on screen.
The Reasons Why M3GAN Went Viral
The first three weeks after its debut have been very successful for Blumhouse, with M3GAN bringing in $126 million worldwide at the box office. The latest film from the company has been a smashing success, but this shouldn’t come as much of a surprise, considering M3GAN was already an internet star before the movie was released. This dance scene was performed just before one of M3GAN’s gruesome murders, and it was featured in the first trailer for the film. The completely out-there character of the trailer catapulted M3GAN to instant success, and the dance itself has become a central part of the company’s marketing efforts.
The film’s rating is another aspect that has contributed to M3GAN’s continued popularity on social media. The intended R rating for M3GAN was lowered to a more manageable PG-13. Although this was not the only reason for M3GAN’s success, expanding the character’s reach has ensured that the character’s popularity among young viewers has persisted as a hot topic of discussion on the internet. Blum house’s newest adversary reportedly sparked negotiations about a sequel before M3GAN had even debuted, and last week came the official confirmation that M3GAN 2.0 will hit cinemas in 2025.
It’s clear from this funny mashup that M3GAN isn’t going anywhere anytime soon, as she keeps making her way into odd corners of the pop cultural landscape. Though M3GAN hinted at a sequel in passing, it is still being determined what features M3GAN 2.0 will have. Since audiences enjoyed the wackiness of M3GAN’s plot, Blumhouse will try to do it again. Since M3GAN may be venturing into uncharted waters, they may try to take it to an even crazier level. M3GAN has been a huge financial success, so who knows where the evil AI doll may pop up next?
