Chappie

Briefly: After Neill Blomkamp's second film Elysium opened #1 at the box office just over a week ago, Sony announced last week that they're partnering with Media Rights Capital to co-produce, co-finance and distribute his next film Chappie. The film will tell he story of a robot (voiced by Sharlto Copley) imbued with artificial intelligence who is stolen by two local gangsters who want to use him for their own nefarious purposes. Ninja and Yolandi Visser, voices of the South African Zef counter-culture movement and rap-rave duo Die Antwoord, will play the gangsters. Now THR has learned the film hits theaters March 27, 2015, adding to a crowded box office year that includes The Avengers: Age of Ultron and much more.

    This sounds fun.

    I'd rather watch this than another generic and predictable comic book movie. Fuck Avengers and Star Wars. Just keep bringing the original sci-fi, Blomkamp.
  • Chris Groves
    I get less and less interested in each of his successive movies. Let me guess...there will be repetitive, over-the-top violence that is supposed to be awesome/hilarious?
  • Charlie Hard
    Neill Blomkamp is really putting Sharlto Copley to work, they are starting to become one of my favorite director/actor team since Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg. Here's hoping the next film will be just as awesome.

    Sharlto was the only good thing about Elysium. And Chris, Im all for what your saying. D9 was pretty original. I thought Elysium had a lot of potential it just almost mirrored the predictability of these lame superhero movies...unfortunately.
