Evolution Steps Forward In New Trailer For Neill Blomkamp’s ‘Chappie’

Written by on January 9, 2015 


While we might be more interested in what he’d do with the Alien franchise, director Neill Blomkamp will be returning this year with a new sci-fi film, Chappie. Once again adapting one of his earlier shorts, the project tells the story of a robot imbued with artificial intelligence who is stolen by two local gangsters who want to use him for their own nefarious purposes.

With Sharlto Copley taking the lead role of our robot, performed through motion-capture, Ninja and Yolandi Visser and Die Antwoord as the two gangsters, the cast also includes Dev Patel, Jose Pablo Cantillo, Sigourney Weaver, and Hugh Jackman. This new preview still sells a strange blockbuster that at least looks more interesting then his last effort. Check out the new trailer below along with 2003 short the film’s based on, Tetra Vaal.

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 opens on March 27th, 2015.
