We’re big fans of director Neil Blomkamp, the man behind District 9 and Elysium, so his new sci-fi thriller Chappie is on our radar and the trailer certainly looks like it has a lot to offer.
Chappie himself is played by Blomkamp collaborator, actor Sharlto Copley. The trailer is below and the poster in beneath that.
After being kidnapped by two criminals during birth, Chappie becomes the adopted son in a strange and dysfunctional family. Chappie is preternaturally gifted, one of a kind, a prodigy. He also happens to be a robot.
Written by Blomkamp and his wife Terri Tatchell, the March 6, 2015 release is produced by Simon Kinberg and stars Sharlto Copley, Hugh Jackman, Dev Patel, Sigourney Weaver, Ninja, Yolandi Visser, Jose Pablo Cantillo, and Brandon Auret.
