2023's most entertaining movie is finally available to stream at home

The movie racked up a very impressive 93% on Rotten Tomatoes.

2023 has given us some very entertaining movies, by which we mean films that aren't just great (or even necessarily good), but fundamentally fun. Out of all of the 2023 movies that put being fun ahead of being good, and in the process ended up being both very fun and very good, is M3GAN.


It tells the story of a young girl who has lost both of her parents in a tragic car accident, so her tech genius aunt (Allison Williams) pairs her with her latest invention, a humanoid doll by the name of M3GAN. But her new robotic companion begins to take her new task as protective BFF a bit too seriously...

Released at the very start of 2023, it quickly became a viral sensation on social media - thanks to that dancing scene - as well as a decent box office hit ($181 million worldwide on a $12 million budget), with talk of a sequel kicking off pretty much immediately.

When the movie hit cinemas back in January, we chatted to Williams (below), as well as the movie's director Gerard Johnstone (right here) and legendary horror producers James Wan and Jason Blum (right here).


M3GAN was a commercial and critical success upon release

At the half-way point of 2023, we named M3GAN as one of the best movies of the year so far (check out that full list here), but we weren't the only ones to love the movie. With a Rotten Tomatoes score of 93%, the love for the sci-fi-horror came flooding in:

Collider - "As the world makes greater strides in AI and robotics, these kinds of scenarios become more terrifyingly possible. Luckily, you have the strange image of M3GAN twerking or driving an expensive sports car to make you giggle past the discomfort."

The Wrap - "Johnstone’s film captures the same alchemical blend of heart, humour and havoc you find only rarely, in crossover classics like Gremlins, and it yields more entertainment than most would-be blockbusters."


IndieWire - "Its creators are so clearly on the same insane wavelength, nimbly blending camp and social satire and actual terror, that M3GAN is poised to crack the murder-doll pantheon and stay there forever. Oscars!"

M3GAN is available to watch with a NOW Cinema Membership or on Sky Cinema from today (Friday 25 August).
