A Robot Who Was Given the Ability to Both Think and Feel Fights to Survive in a New Trailer for the Film ‘CHAPPiE’

Sony Pictures has released a new trailer for CHAPPiE (previously), an upcoming film co-written and directed by Neill Blomkamp of District 9 and Elysium fame. The trailer finds CHAPPiE, a robot who was given the ability to both think and feel, fighting for his very own survival against a group of humans who want to wipe him off of the face of the Earth. The film is scheduled to hit theaters on March 6, 2015.

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.
