Neill Blomkamp’s third film, Chappie, focuses on a robot who can think for himself, feels emotions, and has hopes and dreams. Blomkamp (District 9, Elysium) directed and co-wrote the sci-fi thriller which stars Dev Patel, Hugh Jackman, and Sigourney Weaver. Chappie also reunites Blomkamp with his District 9 and Elysium star Sharlto Copley who handles the performance capture work of playing Chappie and making him come alive on the screen.
Columbia Pictures will release Chappie in theaters on March 6, 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.
