You know you want to have all your friends over for a M3GAN dance party. Here’s the latest word on when/where the hit horror flick will be streaming.
M3GAN hit theaters on Jan. 6 and went on to generate a surprising $38.5 million (U.S.) with its opening weekend, making it the first film in over a decade to open to more than $30 million in the first week of a new year. As of January 12, heading into its second weekend, its 11-day total had reached $59.2 million — all against a $12 million production budget.
Where to Watch M3GAN on Streaming
As a Blumhouse film owned and distributed by Universal Pictures, M3GAN is expected to stream on Peacock. As such, it would be available to subscribers of the Peacock Premium tier, which costs $4.99 per month. Sign up for Peacock and you also gain access to other exclusive content such as Jordan Peele’s Nope, the Halloween Ends franchise finale, the supernatural horror film The Black Phone, the slasher flicks Sick and They/Them, Idris Elba’s Beast, Minions: The Rise of Gru and the blockbuster Jurassic World Dominion. You also can stream original TV series such as Vampire Academy, The Best Man: The Final Chapters, Pitch Perfect: Bumper in Berlin and Bel-Air… the daily soap opera Days of Our Lives… and full seasons of Yellowstone, Modern Family, The Office and Two and a Half Men. Peacock also is the exclusive home for next-day streaming of new episodes of NBC shows such as the #OneChicago trifecta, La Brea, the Law & Order franchise, Saturday Night Live and The Voice.
When to Watch M3GAN on Streaming
A Peacock release date has not yet been set, but Universal films can hit the streaming service as soon as 45 days after their theatrical bow — which, in M3GAN‘s case, would be Feb. 20. However, some films (namely, the more successful ones) take longer to land on streaming. Jordan Peele’s Nope, for example, took 18 weeks to land on Peacock, Minions: The Rise of Gru took 15 weeks, and Jurassic World Dominion took 12 weeks. TVLine will of course keep you posted!

What Is M3GAN About?
From James Wan (the filmmaker behind the Saw, Insidious and The Conjuring franchises) and Blumhouse (the producer of the Halloween films, The Black Phone and The Invisible Man), M3GAN tells the story of Gemma (Get Out’s Allison Williams), a toy-company roboticist who, upon becoming the caretaker of her 8-year-old niece Cady (The Haunting of Hill House‘s Violet McGraw), puts the finishing touches on the titular marvel of artificial intelligence, a life-like doll programmed to be a child’s greatest companion and (ha!) a parent’s greatest ally. M3GAN was directed by Gerard Johnstone (Housebound) from a screenplay by Akela Cooper (Malignant, The Nun 2) based on a story by Cooper and Wan.
