Must Watch: First Trailer for Neill Blomkamp's New Film 'Chappie'
"I brought you into this world… a machine that can think and feel." Yes! It's time for our first look. Sony Pictures has debuted the first trailer for Neill Blomkamp's Chappie, a story about a boy, his robot, and the big, bad world he brings him into. Dev Patel stars as the creator of Chappie, a robot who will rely on his heart and soul to find his way in the world and become his own man. Sharlto Copley voices our new friend Chappie, and the cast includes Hugh Jackman and Sigourney Weaver. This trailer is really something, everything I was hoping for and more from Blomkamp. I love the worlds he creates, and the characters he introduces, I'm always excited for more. "People are always fearful of something they don't understand."
Here's the first official trailer for Neill Blomkamp's Chappie, originally from Entertainment Weekly:
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. Chappie is the third film written and directed by South African sci-fi auteur Neill Blomkamp, following up his films Elysium and District 9 previously. The script was co-written by Terri Tatchell, based on Blomkamp's short Tetra Vaal. Filming took place down in South Africa last year, with a cast including rappers Die Antwoord and Hugh Jackman. Sony Pictures has Blomkamp's Chappie set for release starting on March 6th, 2015 next year. Thoughts?
