A Terrifying New Trailer Just Dropped For The 'Child's Play' Film Reboot
Along with the one and a half minute-long teaser trailer shared today comes confirmation of a UK cinema release date as 21st June, which is the same as the US screening date as stated at other trailer drops..
The movie is set to feature Star Wars' Mark Hamill as the voice of Chucky, along with Parks and Recreation star Aubrey Plaza as the single mother who buys her son the sinister toy.
Atlanta's Brian Tyree Henry is the cop on the trail of the miniature murderer and Lights Out actor Gabriel Bateman stars as the son.
Meanwhile, Tim Matheson, of Animal House fame, appears as the founder of the Kaslan Corporation, which produces the creepy Buddi dolls - a rebranding of the 'Good Guy' dolls from the original movie.

Hamill, who takes over as the voice of Chucky from Brad Dourif in the original 1989 movie, said 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."
Fans should prepare themselves for a toe-curling, hide-behind-your-hands content as the movie has achieved an 'R' rating in the US for "bloody horror violence, and language throughout" - this is translated to roughly a 15 in the UK.
The Child's Play remake has original director Lars Kleberg overseeing the remake, albeit without the involvement of original series creator Don Mancini - something which fans voiced their disapproval of when the first trailer was released earlier this year.
The new Child's Play trailer looks fine, but I still don't feel good about this being made. @RealDonMancini created Chucky, wrote every movie, directed the past few, and the series is still alive. He didn't want them to make this but they're doing it anyway. That's disrespectful.- Dead Meat (@deadmeatjames) February 8, 2019
However, those who were disappointed will be pleased to hear that Mancini is currently working on a Child's Play TV series, which will air on Syfy.
