It's official! CHUCKY is back and he's ready for a reboot. Horror fans have been unkind to say the least when talking about the reboot of CHILD'S PLAY from MGM. Horror fans are loyal to their franchises and the original is still spawning movie sequels and a TV series to this day. However, sometimes an icon needs and upgrade and MGM with a recent slew of trailer and featurette releases seem to be winning the horror audience over.
Coming to the UK from VERTIGO RELEASING on JUNE 21. CHILD'S PLAY (2019) can expect a wide theatrical release to scare the shit out of audiences nation wide. It's also going day and date with the US which outside of the MCU is practically unheard of these days for a horror.
The new look Chucky looks ready to cause mayhem and we are more than ready!
Stay tuned for more news coming soon!
Aubrey Plaza stars as a single mother who buys her son Andy [Gabriel Bateman] a Buddi doll, unaware of its more sinister nature. Chucky, the doll, is voiced by Mark Hamill, who says of his new role, “I can’t wait to bring such an iconic character to life, and present him in a way you’ve never seen before.”
Also appearing are Brian Tyree Henry as the cop on the trail of the miniature murderer and Tim Matheson [Animal House], as the founder of the Kaslan Corporation, which produces the Buddi dolls.
