Even though M3GAN went viral several months before it was released, Gerard Johnston initially wasn’t able to introduce that dance sequence that stormed the Internet in the movie trailer.
I was very excited when I watched the trailer and noticed how many dances there were, I thought – Oh My God, you gave it away, you should cut it out. I really wanted to be a surprise. I wanted a really fun surprise.
The first trailer has viewed 22 million views and TikTok has seen more than 300 million posts tagged with #M3GAN. Universal was very pleased with the films, and that it’s already going to be discussed a sequel.
Johnston continued: “The first time I heard you?
Since we had two screenings, I was able to sit at the audience amidst people responding openly. For the first time he wasn’t sure what they were going to see. Nevertheless, I was a little upset, but the film should be promoted, so it was entertaining to see the film as a re-shot, and it was funny when it was re-produced.
With such a trailer, we just need to trust Universal. If you make a film, it’s exhausting to make every decision. So its very nice to sit down and say, Okay, guys, do all you can. I know there is something else in this film that some people haven’t seen yet. This’s really good to me.
Even the audience feel more than normal, the film now has a well-written note on Rotten Tomatoes.
