Blomkamp’s Chappie Trailer

Even though I was eagerly waiting for Elysium, it wasn’t so good. However, a couple of months ago I caught a rerun of District 9 on the TV and thought to myself that after these many year, it still was a damn good film. But the biggest compliment came from my sci-fi hating mom [1]. It’s just too damn good to miss Neill Blomkamp’s upcoming sci-fi entry. I might even try to convince my mother to watch it to see if she liked it and is sci-fi-hating approved. xD

Chappie is about all the shenanigans that happen after a robot named, well, Chappie (voiced by Sharlto Copley) is discovered to have child-like curiosity, innocence and other characteristics, which threatens what humans perceived as the norm. It looks quite err… emotional and “lovely,” despite IMDb labeling this a thriller.

Chappie also stars Dev Patel, Hugh Jackman, Sigourney Weaver and Yolandi Visser.

It’s set for an early March 2015 release.
