M3GAN will invade theaters in a couple of weeks, and a “first look” featurette previews what to expect from the killer doll horror film. Universal Pictures released the following behind-the-scenes video with producer James Wan and more discussing the film.

The film is written by Akela Cooper (Malignant) and is directed by Gerard Johnstone, best known for the New Zealand horror-comedy Housebound. The film stars Allison Williams, Violet McGraw, Ronny Chieng, Brian Jordan Alvarez, Jen Van Epps, Lori Dungey and Stephane Garneau-Monten and arrives on January 13th.

The synopsis reads:

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 (Get Out’s 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, The Haunting of Hill House), 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.
