The first teaser was just released Neill Blomkamp’s Sci-Fi Comedy CHAPPIE starring Hugh Jackman, Sigourney Weaver, and Dev Patel. Chappie is the story of the first robot who has the ability to think for itself. There’s a darkness to the footage in the trailer that makes me wonder about the comedy level of the film, but it also showed a lot of heart.
Chappy hits theaters in March of 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.
