Toy Story 4 & Child's Play returns

 
It's Thursday so we are going to turn our focus on movies and the latest releases at the cinema.
To walk us through the movies set to hit the silver screen in Korea, we have our Lee Min-sun in the studio.
 
Min-sun, what do you have for us today?
 
Hi Mark, the latest in the series of two well-known film franchises are hitting theaters in Korea today… Disney and Pixar's 'Toy Story 4' and a reboot version of 'Child's Play'.
 
Both will be released in the U.S on Friday .
The original 'Toy Story' was released in 1995 and 'Toy Story 3' was released in June 2010, so the latest installment is bringing the characters back for the first time in almost in a decade.
 
After such a long wait, many viewers in Korea are excited about the new release. Some 120-thousand tickets were pre-sold as of Wednesday night…ranking number one in pre-sales among newly released films this week.
 
Yeah, all the Toy Story films have been really fun, family-friendly movies…So, Min-sun, without spoiling anything what kind of adventures can we expect in 'Toy Story 4'?
 
So the story begins at a new owner Bonnie's house with familiar characters like Woody, Buzz Lightyear and Jessie.
When a new hand-made toy named Forky runs away...denying its fate as a toy, Woody and his friends go on an adventure to persuade and bring Forky back to Bonnie.
 
The story takes place at various places like a traveling carnival and an antique store to provide a variety of visual attractions.
It's also showing at IMAX theatres for fans who want to have even more vivid viewing experience.
 
The animation is loved for its charming toy characters...and heartwarming stories.
 
Along with new characters like Forky and baby doll Gabby Gabby at the antique store, the voices of the main characters Woody and Buzz are played by the same actors Tom Hanks and Tim Allen who took the role for the whole series...so there's something for everyone to enjoy whether you like the newer or older Toy Story movies.
 
That's wonderful to hear. And you said another sequel film is being released today…'Child's Play'. It's the scary Chucky doll that never dies.

Right, this is the 8th version of 'Child's Play' and is the remake and reboot of the original film released in 1988 with the same title.
When the doll that was gifted as a birthday present to Andy becomes self-aware and reveals its evil nature, it becomes Andy's worst nightmare.
 
This year's Chucky got some major upgrades with the advancement of technology. Geared with artificial intelligence, the killer doll can connect to and control all the digital devices around it to turn on the TV, change the room temperature and manipulate smartphones.
 
Using these powers, Chucky tracks down and persistently threats people and kill them to become Andy's only friend.
It's horrifying because these are digital devices that we use in everyday life.
