As we are now less than a month away from the release of director Lars Klevberg’s Chucky reboot, Orion Pictures this week gives us another look at Child’s Play courtesy of a new TV spot. Titled “Playtime,” the clip ultimately finds Chucky doing what he does best as he embarks on a violent killing spree.
Child’s Play utilizes a screenplay by Tyler Burton Smith, which is based on the original 1988 film of the same name. In Lars Klevberg’s reboot Mark Hamill voices Chucky, while Aubrey Plaza, Brian Tyree Henry, and Gabriel Bateman star alongside. Plaza plays the mother of a young boy named Andy (Gabriel Bateman), as she gifts her son a toy doll for his birthday. There’s only one problem, the doll is defective and has been hacked to unlock limitless programming. So as opposed to the original movie where Chucky is possessed by a serial killer, here he has the technological capabilities to learn and develop violent actions.
Beatrice Kitsos, Ty Consiglio, and Carlease Burke also feature in 2019’s Child’s Play, which lands in theaters June 21.
