Yesterday we got our first look at the poster, and now the first trailer for South African director Neill Blomkamp’s latest film Chappie has been released; check it out here after the official synopsis…
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.
Chappie is set for release on March 6th 2015 with Blomkamp directing a cast that includes Hugh Jackman (X-Men: Days of Future Past), Sigourney Weaver (Avatar), Sharlto Copley (Elysium), Dev Patel (The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel) and Jose Pablo Cantillo (The Walking Dead).
