As you get older, the idea of talking toys loses its appeal. I mean, most Millenials probably still have some sort of fear of Chucky from Child’s Play but now, the murderous doll is not only coming for blood but our childhoods as well. Considering that the highly anticipated remake of the classic horror film is set to hit theatres on the same day as the fourth installment of the Toy Story series, Orion Pictures brilliantly trolled the Disney franchise with their theatrical poster for Child’s Play.
Although Toy Story will undoubtedly be a bigger box office hit than Child’s Play, the horror film took aim at their competitors with their latest promotional tactic. The latest poster reveals Chucky walking away from what appears to be Woody’s deceased and battered body. Solely Woody’s iconic hat and part of his arm shows while Chucky’s dirty sneaker is seen walking away from the scene of the crime.
The poster shares a similar teaser to the initial teaser posters that Disney issued for Toy Story in November.
The Child’s Play remake gives a modern twist to a horror classic, bringing it into the 21st century. The film is set to star Aubrey Plaza, Gabriel Bateman, Brian Tyree Henry, and Mark Hamill as the voice of Chucky. Keep your eyes peeled for both Toy Story 4 and Child’s Play.
