CHILD'S PLAY Official Trailer #2 - (2019).
The multinational Kaslan Corporation has just launched Buddi, a revolutionary line of high-tech dolls designed to be life-long companions to their owners, learning from their surroundings, and acting accordingly, quickly becoming a success for children worldwide. At an assembly factory in Vietnam, an employee is fired by his supervisor for insufficient work. In retaliation, the employee manipulates the Buddi doll that he is assembling by disabling all of its safety protocols, before committing suicide. The doll is packed alongside others in preparation for international delivery.
In Chicago, Illinois, retail clerk Karen Barclay (Aubrey Plaza) and her 13-year-old hearing-impaired son, Andy (Gabriel Bateman), have moved into their new apartment. In an attempt to cheer Andy up and make up for the unease caused by the relocation and her new boyfriend Shane (David Lewis), Karen blackmails her boss, Wes (Amro Majzoub), in order to procure a defective Buddi doll, giving it to Andy as an early birthday gift. Once Andy activates the doll, he names himself "Chucky" and becomes attached to his owner. Over time, Chucky helps Andy befriend two other kids in the building - Falyn (Beatrice Kitsos) and Pugg (Ty Consiglio) - but also begins to display violent tendencies. For instance, he tries to strangle the Barclays' pet cat after it scratches Andy, and one night, while he and his friends gleefully watch a horror film, Chucky starts mimicking the violence on the screen and approaches the trio with a kitchen knife before Andy disarms him.
The next morning, Andy arrives home to find that his cat is dead; Chucky admits to having killed it so that it would not hurt him anymore. Karen locks the doll in a closet, but he escapes and terrorizes Shane, which leads him to confront Andy. After overhearing Andy's pleas for Shane to disappear, Chucky follows him home, where it is revealed that Shane has a family and has been having an affair with Karen behind his wife's back. While Shane is outside taking down Christmas lights, Chucky breaks his legs and activates a tiller that scalps and kills him. The following day, Chucky delivers Shane's skinned face as a gift to a horrified Andy.
