Chucky is back on the big screen and your first look is here.
MGM and Orion Pictures have released the first Child’s Play trailer online, following its debut in theaters with their new horror movie, The Prodigy. In this version, the killer is an out of control AI robot from the fictional Buddi doll line. The toy was named for the ’80s My Buddy brand that inspired Mancini to write the spec script Blood Buddy, which was later reworked for the original Child’s Play. Tyler Burton Smith (Quantum Break) wrote the script for the remake, with Lars Klevberg (Polaroid) directing.
If the trailer is any indication, this Child’s Play is going back to the scary basics. The question is, will Chucky throw comedic zingers as he slashes his way through the cast, or will he be more robotic in nature? The fact that Andy is near-deaf makes me wonder if Chucky is speaking to him through his earpiece? There’s still so much to be seen, especially since the filmmakers keep Chucky in the shadows throughout this footage. What do you all think?Child’s Play slashes its way to theaters on June 21, 2019.
