Forget Avatar and the recently-announced Oscar nominees — the breakout hit this year has been a low-budget horror film about a life-sized doll that takes on a mind of her own.

Yes, we’re talking about M3GAN (short for Model 3 Generative Android). The Blumhouse film about an overly loyal child’s companion was released in December and has quickly gone from a cult-favorite to a certified hit. Filmed on a budget of just $12 million, M3GAN has now surpassed $126 million worldwide, making it the third-highest-grossing film of 2023.

M3GAN Runtime, Rating, Spoilers

Written by horror movie vet Akela Cooper (Malignant, The Nun 2), M3GAN follows a young girl named Cady, whose aunt designs a robot doll to help care for her after Cady’s parents are killed in a terrible tragedy. But things take an unexpected turn when M3GAN becomes overprotective of Cady, threatening anyone — and anything — that comes too close to the child.

Starring Allison Willams and Violet McGraw, M3GAN is rated PG-13 with a runtime of one hour and 42 minutes.

The film has become a huge hit not only in theaters but in the pop culture lexicon, inspiring countless memes and a surge in fan-made costumes and merch. It also inspired a Saturday Night Live sketch titled “M3GAN 2.0.”
