The trailer has been released for Lars Klevberg's "Child's Play" reboot. Aubrey Plaza, Beatrice Kitsos, Ty Consiglio, and Carlease Burke star. It hits theatres June 21st.
Plaza had this to say about the film to THR:
Buckle up. I love it so much. To me, the original is an iconic movie. I haven't seen our film, just the trailer, but it's a real throwback horror movie. It's almost got a Spielbergian vibe to it. The reason I did it was for how beautiful the script was. It doesn't feel like a hokey, shticky, campy movie. If you remember the original Child's Play, it was a drama! It wasn't that funny. As the franchise went on, it became something else. The remake really captures the original.
A mother (Plaza) gives her son (Bateman) a toy doll for his birthday, unaware of its more sinister nature.
