As of this writing, “M3GAN” is officially available via Premium VOD through most popular digital retailers, including Amazon Prime Video, Apple TV, Google Play, Vudu. As it stands, the movie is $19.99 to rent or $24.99 to buy. Though, as we’ve noted previously, “owning” a digital copy of a movie can be a bit impermanent and that should be understood before purchasing any movie or TV show through a digital marketplace these days.
The price for digital rentals typically comes down for these newer movies after several weeks. But the “premium” VOD pricing became popular during the pandemic as a way for Hollywood to capitalize on a lack of theatrical revenue. As for those who may need a refresher on the specifics of the film in question, the synopsis for “M3GAN” reads as follows:
M3GAN is a marvel of artificial intelligence, a life-like doll programmed to be a child’s greatest companion and a parent’s greatest ally. Designed by brilliant toy-company roboticist Gemma (Allison Williams), M3GAN can listen and watch and learn as she becomes friend and teacher, playmate and protector, for the child she is bonded to. When Gemma suddenly becomes the caretaker of her orphaned 8-year-old niece, Cady (Violet McGraw), Gemma’s unsure and unprepared to be a parent. Under intense pressure at work, Gemma decides to pair her M3GAN prototype with Cady in an attempt to resolve both problems—a decision that will have unimaginable consequences.
