The first trailer has been released for Chappie, the next movie from District 9 and Elysium director Neill Blomkamp.
The movie is a coming-of-age tale, but instead of following a young human being coming into their own, this follows a robot. It stars Dev Patel, Hugh Jackman, Sigourney Weaver, Jose Pablo Cantillo, South African rap-rave duo Die Antwoord (Yo-Landi Visser, Ninja), and Sharlto Copley as Chappie.
You read a summary, see a poster, and watch the trailer below.
Every child comes into the world full of promise, and none more so than Chappie: he is gifted, special, a prodigy. Like any child, Chappie will come under the influence of his surroundings – some good, some bad – and he will rely on his heart and soul to find his way in the world and become his own man. But there’s one thing that makes Chappie different from anyone else: he is a robot. The first robot with the ability to think and feel for himself. His life, his story, will change the way the world looks at robots and humans forever.
Chappie will be released on March 6, 2015.
