Fleshing out what we’ve seen in a previous trailer Chappie looks to borrow ideas from a number of other sci-fi films.
Robocop, AI, I am Robot, there are elements of each of these present in the latest film from the director of District 9, Neill Blomkamp.
Chappie is widely available in cinemas from the 6th of March.
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.
