Without a doubt, one of this year’s most anticipated films is Neill Blomkamp’s Chappie, about a thinking, feeling robot who finds himself a newborn babe born into the human world. The first trailer introduced us to that childlike creature; Chappie met mostly cool people fascinated by his learning process, and trying to protect him from a lurking Hugh Jackman. Now, we get a better look at an oft-foretold future, where once again, mankind has lost control of its own technology ,and fear drives our world. Turns out Jackman’s Vincent isn’t the only big bad; Sigourney Weaver plays a mysterious corporate (government?) head calling the shots.
Go ahead and watch it again; you know you want to.
“Chappie’s got stories? Chappie’s got a book?” Chappie’s in theaters March 6th.
