Puppet Master reboot poster features redesigned Blade

RLJE Films will be releasing the new PUPPET MASTER reboot into theaters this August as the first feature released under the resurrected Fangoria label. Director Sonnier Laguna and screenwriter Craig S. Zahler courted original franchise creator Charles Band for the right to produce an all-new take on the idea, with Band serving as Executive Producer.

The reboot maintains all of the brutally inventive puppet-kills infused with the comedic tendencies that made the original franchise so popular with fans while expanding upon the titular Puppet Master, Andre Toulon’s backstory and developing richer dialogue, characters, and narratives.

And today we have the film's poster, which comes to us via our buddies over at B-D. It features our first look at the new film's redesigned Blade character and I think it's a good look. Simple, different, yet effective. What do you think? Give the poster a look-see below and then let us know!

In Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich: 

Recently divorced and reeling, Edgar (Lennon) returns to his childhood home to regroup his life. When Edgar finds a nefarious looking puppet in his deceased brother’s room, he decides to sell the doll for some quick cash at a small-town convention celebrating the 30th Anniversary of the infamous Toulon Murders. Girl-next-door Ashley (Pellicer) and his comic book shop boss, Markowitz (Franklin), join Edgar for the doomed road trip. All hell breaks loose when a strange force animates the puppets at the convention, setting them on a bloody killing spree that’s motivated by an evil as old as time.

The reimagining is directed by Sonny Laguna and Tommy Wiklund from a script written by S. Craig Zahler and stars Thomas Lennon, Jenny Pellicer, Nelson Franklin, Charlyne Yi, Michael Pare, Udo Kier, and Barbara Crampton.  The film is produced by Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Mark Vahradian. RLJE Films plans to release the movie in theaters in August 2018.
