1967 was the Summer of Love; 2019 might as well be the Summer of Dolls. Of course, we’re not talking about toys or attractive ladies, we’re talking about diminutive devils like Chucky, Annabelle, and Brahms, all of whom have feature films coming this June and July.
Child’s Play arrives in theaters first on June 21st and, ironically, it’s the same release date as another film featuring dolls: Toy Story 4. The latest poster for the remake from Orion pokes fun of this fact with Chucky stomping the life out of poor Woody. Have a look:
A mother gives her son a toy doll for his birthday, unaware of its more sinister nature.
Child’s Play is directed by Lars Klevberg from a screenplay penned by Tyler Burton Smith; the film stars Aubrey Plaza, Mark Hamill, and Gabriel Bateman.
