Kaslan has announced
your new best friend their new toy, the Buddi doll, which is a reimagining of the Good Guys doll that was the rage of the holiday season back in 1988. While the Good Guys doll was possessed by the soul of a serial killer, Buddi carries A.I. technology that’s gone really bad…
Chucky has been reborn in Orion Films’ Child’s Play reboot, which now has a trailer.
In the modern take, a mother (Aubrey Plaza) gives her son (Gabriel Bateman) one of those Buddi dolls for his birthday, unaware of its more sinister nature. The footage looks bleak and really captures the tone of director Lars Klevberg‘s short film “Polaroid” (watch it here).
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.
