Movie posters are typically hit-or-miss, and lately it feels like there have been a lot of misses.
But we finally got a hit this week, thanks to the brilliant marketing team behind the Chucky reboot film, Child’s Play. They released a poster on their social media accounts on Tuesday and it appears to show Chucky walking out of the frame, leaving behind a doll that looks a lot like Woody from Toy Story.
Check out the poster for Toy Story 4 and the new poster for Child’s Play side-by-side…
As you can see, the only thing they changed was Woody’s shirt color, most likely because they wanted to avoid a potential lawsuit from Disney.
It’s a brilliant idea for a poster, and honestly it kinda makes me want some weird Toy Story/Child’s Play crossover film. Obviously that’s never going to happen though.
Child’s Play hits theaters June 21…the same day as Toy Story 4.
