Sony Pictures has released a teaser trailer for Chappie, an upcoming film co-written and directed by Neill Blomkamp (District 9 and Elysium). The movie is about a gifted robot named Chappie who goes from being a reject to being cool and stars Anri du Toit and Watkin Tudor Jones of Die Antwoord, Hugh Jackman, Sigourney Weaver, Dev Patel, and Sharlto Copley (as the voice of Chappie). It is currently scheduled to hit theaters on March 6th, 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.
