A reimagined Chucky is stalking into theaters this summer in the new CHILD’S PLAY, and we’ve now been given a good look at him.

Orion Pictures releases the CHILD’S PLAY remake, directed by Lars Klevberg from a script by Tyler Burton Smith, June 21. Aubrey Plaza stars as Karen, the single mother who gives her son (Gabriel Bateman) the doll—part of a higher-tech line called Buddi this time—that turns out to have a murderous bent. Mark Hamill voices Chucky, and Bryan Tyree Henry co-stars as the detective investigating Chucky’s rampage; Todd Masters and MastersFX created Chucky, and THE WALKING DEAD’s Bear McCreary is the composer.
