New ‘Chappie’ Trailer Shows More Action, Less Heart
  |  @   |  

We got our first look back in November at Chappie, the upcoming film from director Neill Blomkamp (District 9, Elysium).

Now, a second trailer for the film has been released, which you can watch here below.

The new trailer see the roles of Hugh Jackman, Dev Patel, and Sigourney Weaver come into sharper focus and reveals more action than the more emotional spin of the first trailer. It also became more apparent to me that Chappie draws strongly on elements from two sci-fi classics, RoboCop and Short Circuit, which Blomkamp is weaving into a dystopian sci-fi take on Pinocchio.

Chappie stars Dev Patel, Hugh Jackman, Sigourney Weaver, Jose Pablo Cantillo, South African rap-rave duo Die Antwood (Yo-Landi Visser, Ninja), and Sharlto Copley as Chappie.

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 in theaters on March 6, 2015.
