Check out this new Child’s Play reboot poster which might just be the best piece of marketing that’s been issued for the movie so far. The thing that makes it so great is the fact that it hilariously trolls Toy Story 4.
The poster was shared on Twitter with the following caption:
“There’s a new sheriff in town. Meet your new best friend on June 21.”
Check out the foot of Chucky walking off frame leaving a trail of blood behind him along with a slaughtered cowboy doll that looks like Woody lying on the ground. Yeah, it’s a little insane, but it’s all good.
The movie features a new version of Chucky, who is voiced by Mark Hamill, and the doll starts on a bloody killing journey as a group of kids trying to stop his killing spress.
The movie stars Aubrey Plaza as a mother who gives her son, Andy, a toy Buddi doll for his birthday. Turns out the doll is sinister and primed for killing. The story follows a group of friends as they take on a technologically-advanced doll that enters their world. It’s also been reported that the version of Chucky in this film is “a defective ‘Buddy doll’ whose programming code was hacked so that he has no limitations to learning and also violence.” There is no possessed doll in this remake.
Also includes Brian Tyree Henry (Atlanta), Gabriel Bateman (Lights Out) as Plaza’s son, Beatrice Kitsos (The Exorcist) and Ty Consiglio (Wonder) who will be playing the roles of Falyn and Pugg, respectively, two friends of Andy Barclay. Carlease Burke (Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle) will also star in the film.
Child’s Play will hit theaters on June 21.
