Poster Posse Unveils Sleek Art Prints for Neill Blomkamp's 'Chappie'
In a few weeks, we'll see if District 9 director Neill Blomkamp has another good sci-fi flick in him when Chappie hits theaters. So far, the trailers have me feeling mixed about the movie, because it has so many familiar elements from RoboCop, Short Circuit and more. But I'm hoping that maybe the trailer is just using those things to sell the movie to as general of an audience as possible. Of course, I hoped the same thing about Elysium and was a little disappointed. Anyway, to hype the sci-fi spring release, Poster Posse has created some new prints focused on the titular artificially intelligent robot, and there's great work seen here.
Here's some of the cool art prints for Neill Blomkamp's Chappie direct from Poster Posse:
This is just Phase 1 of Poster Posse's Chappie project. Come back later in the week for more.
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 this spring. Excited?
