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.

RELEASE DATE: June 11, 2013

With shows like Game of Thrones, Boardwalk Empire, and True Blood leading the charge, it’s clear that HBO’s hit shows can often have a hefty budget and rely heavily on visual effects and costumes and so on. One of their newer series, The Newsroom, is not one of those shows.

Created by Aaron Sorkin, the show is simple enough on the surface—being about the inner workings of a news team—but a collection of lives intertwined within this newsroom setting leads to plenty of interesting storylines as the show progresses.
