There’s no denying the upcoming Child’s Play remake has been keeping the promotion lighthearted ahead of its June 21st release date. After poking a little fun at sharing a box office debut with Toy Story 4, the film has released a more traditional preview in the form of a new TV spot. This one wants to remind you that playtime is over, as though we had any doubts this new smart doll would play nice for long. Check out the latest footage above!

In Child’s Play, a mother gives her son a toy doll for his birthday, unaware of its more sinister nature. The cast includes Aubrey Plaza (Parks and Recreation, Legion) as the mother, Karen, Gabriel Bateman (Light’s Out) as her son, Andy, and Brian Tyree Henry (Atlanta) as Greg, a detective who will be investigating the mysterious deaths surrounding the doll. Chucky is voiced by the legendary Mark Hamill.

The film is directed by Lars Klevberg, who is known for his horror film, Polaroid, with a script penned by Quantum Break and Kung Fury 2 writer Tyler Burton Smith. KatzSmith Productions’ David Katzenberg and Seth Grahame-Smith (Stephen King's It) are on board as producers with the film slated to arrive early this summer on June 21st, 2019.
