M3GAN stars Amie Donald as a lifelike AI doll named M3GAN. Designed by roboticist Gemma (Allison Williams), the doll is meant to be a child’s best friend. But after her niece, eight-year-old Cady (Violet McGraw), is orphaned after a car accident, Gemma entrusts her with a M3GAN prototype who soon takes on a life of her own, leading to unimaginable consequences.

Jon Dixon, UK Marketing Director at Showcase Cinemas said: “We’re really excited to be launching this exclusive giveaway to Megans nationwide. M3GAN has already soared its way to box office success in the US and now it’s the UK’s turn to experience this sci-fi smash hit.

“In honour of the creepy character, we wanted to give its namesake a reward, in the form of a free ticket. We can’t wait to for our guests to be on the edge of their seats as they enjoy this action-packed ride play out on the big screen!”
