The horror film, which stars Aubrey Plaza, Brian Tyree Henry, and Gabriel Bateman, will premiere in theaters on June 21, 2019.Today, kids are engaging with technology in their everyday lives, and Child’s Play captures this concept in its story line. “We believe that happiness is about more than entertainment,” says a voice in the trailer. But, the quest to satisfy kids takes a deadly turn when Chucky, a robotic doll that’s supposed to be a best friend, mysteriously doesn’t live up to his name.When a boy is gifted with the seemingly-cute doll, things get bad, fast: He wakes up one night to hear something moving around his house, and then the trailer shows footage of people frantically running out of a toy store. The real icing on the cake is when the boy finds his mom (Plaza) constrained by the murderous toy and screaming for help.Even though some people might not be thrilled about the reboot, which is based on the ’80s movie with the same name, Child’s Play could be a bloody fun adventure.
