WATCH: Trailer and first poster land for Neil Blomkamp’s new movie, Chappie

November 4th, 2014 by Marc Comments

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.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
