WATCH: Child’s Play reboot is delivered straight from the factory

February 9th, 2019 by Marc Comments

We have the first full trailer for the Child’s Play reboot and, while we think this is a really stupid idea, we actually really like the looks of this trailer.

Child’s Play follows a mother (Aubrey Plaza) who gives her son a toy doll for his birthday, unaware of its more sinister nature.

The new movie will be directed by with Lars Klevberg and you may recall a while back we reported some details of the movie that tie in with the new synopsis: The new Chucky is not a possessed toy but rather it’s “A defective ‘Buddy doll’ whose programming code was hacked so that he has no limitations to learning and also violence.”

A character in the movie is described as a “Chinese factory worker who commits suicide shortly after re-programming a Buddy doll to have no limitations”.

So, yeah, Chucky is now a Buddy doll, not a Good Guys doll and rather than being a serial killer he’s… murderous A.I?

The wait is over, your best friend has arrived. From the producers of IT comes Child’s Play, in theaters June 21

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
