Chucky’s back, and he’s been updated for the 21st century. Director Lars Klevberg takes the helm for an all-new interpretation of the classic 1980s slasher Child’s Play, which centers on a single mother (Aubrey Plaza) who buys a high-tech — and secretly deadly — toy doll for her lonely son (Gabriel Bateman). The latest trailer offers new details and a potent taste of the terror to come when the film opens on June 21, and luckily for us, Klevberg was on board to walk us through it. He explains what other iconic 1980s movie references we should be on the lookout for, what classic novel helped inspire the film, how Mark Hamill prepared himself to voice the killer doll (just a note: we don’t recommend doing what he did), and a ton of other behind-the-scenes tidbits.
