June 21 is going to be a very big day for toy movies.
In a feat of truly inspired counter-programming, both Toy Story 4 and Child's Play will be premiering on that day, which has made for some hilarious advertisement strategies.
Toy Story 4, for instance, released this simplistic poster teasing the return of the franchise's beloved lead, Woody.
#ToyStory4 opens in theatres June 21, 2019. Watch the teaser trailer now: https://t.co/EPK2QIiuCq https://t.co/QLLc45Ppyr— Toy Story 4 (@Toy Story 4) 1542036600.0
In response, Child's Play tweeted out this new poster with some pretty frightening implications for ole' Sheriff Woody.
There’s a new sheriff in town. Meet your new best friend on June 21. 🔪 #ChildsPlayMovie https://t.co/aarRm1Dxnd— Child's Play Movie (@Child's Play Movie) 1556647201.0
The poster was captioned:
"There's a new Sheriff in Town."
Fans were pretty shocked to see what Chucky apparently intends to do to Woody.

Then again, Woody's made it through a lot of sticky situations. He might be more than a match for Chucky after all...

It only makes sense that Toy Story and Child's Play take place in the same universe.
