Sony Pictures has released “Day Of Reckoning,” a behind-the-scenes featurette for the upcoming sci-fi film CHAPPiE (previously) co-written and directed by Neill Blomkamp (District 9 and Elysium). They dive into the world of CHAPPiE, a robot who was given the ability to both think and feel, and explain why he is created and why this artificially intelligent being is needed to save humanity.
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.
