Child’s Play Release Date Puts It Up Against Toy Story 4

The Toy Story 4 teaser trailer was released today and Metro Goldwyn Mayer Pictures and Orion Pictures took the opportunity to kick-off their counter-promotion for Child’s Play. The companies announced today that the Child’s Play release date has been set for June 21, 2019 (the same as Toy Story 4) with the release of the first poster, which you can view below.

The Child’s Play cast includes Aubrey Plaza (Ingrid Goes WestLegionParks and Recreation) as Karen, Emmy and Tony nominee Brian Tyree Henry (AtlantaWidows, If Beale Street Could Talk) as Mike, and Gabriel Bateman (Lights OutAmerican Gothic) as Andy.

Filmmaker Lars Klevberg (Polaroid) is directing from a script by Tyler Burton Smith (Kung FuryQuantum Break video game) that is based on the original motion picture.

Child’s Play follows a mother (Plaza) who gives her son (Bateman) a toy doll for his birthday, unaware of its more sinister nature.

David Katzenberg and Seth Grahame-Smith will produce under their KatzSmith Productions banner. The duo produced last year’s smash hit remake of It, the highest-grossing horror film of all time bringing in $700 million at the global box office. Aaron Schmidt and Chris Ferguson will executive produce.

Collaborating with Klevberg is a creative team led by Director of Photography Brendan Uegama (The CW’s Riverdale, Netflix’s Chilling Adventures of Sabrina), production designer Dan Hermansen (Star Trek: BeyondGodzilla), editor Tom Elkins (AnnabelleInferno), costume designer Jori Woodman (The BoyFinal Destination 5), and special effects supervisor Dan Keeler (Fox’s The X-Files, Amazon’s The Man in the High Castle).

Child’s Play, the 1988 film, went on to gross $44 million worldwide on a $9 million budget and spawned one of the most recognizable and successful horror characters of all time with its psychotic killer doll, Chucky.
