New Poster & Trailer: Chappie

By Dr. Know on November 4th, 2014

UPDATE: The first teaser trailer is now ready to go below!

The first poster for Neill Blomkamp’s next, Chappie, is now live. Check it out on your right!

Chappie tells the story of a robot imbued with artificial intelligence who is stolen by two local gangsters who want to use him for their own nefarious purposes.

Sharlto Copley, star of Blomkamp’s District 9 and Elysium, will voice the robot. Ninja and Yolandi Visser, voices of the South African Zef counter-culture movement and members of rap-rave duo Die Antwoord, will play the gangsters. Dev Patel (Slumdog Millionaire) has been confirmed for one of the lead roles, the hero trapped in a ramchsackle town, who will, of course, come to blows with the antagonists. Hugh Jackman and Sigourney Weaver are also on board; however, it’s still unclear at this point why their roles will be.

Blomkamp will direct the script he wrote with wife and District 9 co-writer Terri Tatchell.

Simon Kinberg, one of the producers on Blomkamp’s Elysium, will also produce this one.

Chappie is in theaters March 6, 2015.
