Check out three clips from Chappie, the latest sci-fi picture from director Neill Blomkamp (District 9, Elysium).
The early buzz for this one was pretty loud when it was first announced by Blomkamp, but there seems to be less excitement the closer we’re getting to release. Blomkamp himself seems to be a little bit more preoccupied with tackling a new Alien film. Hopefully we’re just looking into things a bit too hard.
The clips below provide a good look at some slick scenes, giving us a bit of Hugh Jackman’s tough Aussie, the robots in action, and Chappie himself gettin’ all gangsta. Enjoy.
Starring Sharlto Copley, Dev Patel, Ninja, Yo-Landi Vi$$er, Jose Pablo Cantillo, Sigourney Weaver, and Hugh Jackman.
Official synopsis for Chappie:
In the near future, crime is patrolled by an oppressive mechanized police force. But now, the people are fighting back. When one police droid, Chappie, is stolen and given new programming, he becomes the first robot with the ability to think and feel for himself. As powerful, destructive forces start to see Chappie as a danger to mankind and order, they will stop at nothing to maintain the status quo and ensure that Chappie is the last of his kind.
