MGM has finally released the first official trailer for Child’s Play reboot. This trailer certainly shows a horrifying look at what’s to come for Chucky.
We all know the drill. Chucky is a Child’s Play doll which got possessed and is seeking vengeance. This time around, though, it seems like Chucky is a bit more technological and that is an interesting twist.
We get two pieces of information about the technology Chucky brings throughout the trailer:
- At first, they seem to be building Iron Man’s core
- Then, we see Chucky scanning the little boy as soon as he opens the box
Believe me, this is good. I like technology and I love the fact that they are modernizing this reboot. This time around, Chucky (or as they call it “BUDDI” isn’t possessed but instead, he is a defective toy. Not because it was improperly built, but because he was hacked to increase his violent tendencies. I’m really loving the idea, even though it takes away the paranormal aspect of it.
Reconceiving a well-loved classic always feels like wading into tricky waters, however, Lars’ fresh vision for this film turned what could have been a challenging process into a seamless and beautiful collaboration. MGM and Orion’s Child’s Play is not a remake or retelling but a completely new style and concept and we believe that BUDDI fits with this vision perfectly.
