Trailer TIme: Chappie Trailer #2 (2015) Neil Blomkamp’s Third Film!

I don’t know what to make of Chappie.  Basically all of my interest in the film is based on the fact that Neil Blomkamp directed it and I loved District 9 and Elysium.  I find, though, in the trailers that Chappie is more annoying than potentially lovable.  Blomkamp certainly has a robot fixation as they’ve played major roles in all three of his films, so maybe it’s just how the trailer presents it.  Chappie hits theaters in March 6, 2015, official synopsis below.

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.

  1. I’m actually interested in this film despite not being a huge robot fan. I can’t stand fighting robots and Transformers, and things of that nature, but I really liked Beta Max from Big Hero 6. Robots that gain humanity are endearing. That’s why I think Chappie will be a good film. Looks like a lot of heart and less of that stupid fighting robots garbage. And yeah,, great director.


  2. District 9 was one of the best examples of world building I’ve ever seen. Elysium was one of the least thought-through IMO. But I’m willing to chalk it up to sophomore blues.

    This new film looks like a mashup of Short Circuit and Robocop. That’s not a criticism. At this point in the history of storytelling anything anyone comes up with is a mashup of at least two other things. I actually think the movie looks great, and the mo-cap on the robot is phenomenal.
