In case you haven’t seen “M3GAN” yet, M3GAN is a robotic doll who’s programmed to be a child’s greatest companion.  She develops self-awareness and will stop at nothing to protect her companion . . . even murder. The movie is blowing up and it has a pretty cool Colorado connection!

The movie takes place in Seattle, and it was filmed in New Zealand but Colorado was an inspiration for sure… Back in 2019 Head of Physical Production for the movie, Jeanette Volturno, did an interview with KFTV and said, “The suburbs of Auckland (New Zealand) will be made to look like “a Denver, Colorado type feel” for the MEG3N shoot, added Volturno. “There’s a science facility we’ll be at and a couple of other more generic spots that we could play as anywhere in America. It won’t be as complicated as Black Christmas, which specifically required snow and an East Coast college look. MEG3N is more homes, business, normal life.”

So if you’re watching M3GAN and get the feeling that it’s taking place in your neighborhood, that was the idea… Hopefully now actual creepy dolls end up there, though!
