MUST WATCH: Chappie Trailer


Neill Blomkamp is most known for his film District 9. His work in the sci-fi realm is already well regarded in the film industry. Chappie started off as a short story by Blomkamp, well before he was famous and anyone knew his name. The trailer invokes a ton of feelings. The music and tone really deliver a child like quality. It reminds me a lot of Short Circuit from my youth.

It stars Hugh Jackman and will be released March 6, 2015. See below for plot summary:

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.
