Exclusive: New Chappie Clips
With just over a week before the promising action sci-fi thriller, Chappie hits the big screen; Sony Pictures have released three exclusive sneak peak clips of the movie to get you hyped up ahead of its release on March 6th!
In the not-too-distant future, an oppressive mechanized police force keeps crime in check. 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. Like any naive, impressionable child, Chappie comes into the world full of promise: he is gifted, special, a prodigy. But as this first clip shows Chappie, like most children, if prone to peer pressure and wanting to fit in, coming under some bad influences, namely hardened criminal gangs.
He will rely on his heart and soul to find his way in the world and become his own man. But the very thing that makes Chappie unique, his being a robot who can think and feel for himself, is a dangerous notion and it’s a challenge that will pit Chappie against powerful, destructive forces that would ensure that he is the last of his kind- as these next two special sneak peeks show. The first shows explosive shooting sequences implying this movie is going to brimming with action, whilst the second shows Sigourney Weaver’s character fiercely ordering Hugh Jackman’s character to burn poor Chappie to ash.
From director, Neill Blomkamp, who brought you the extra-terrestrial District 9 and the futuristic Elysium starring Matt Damon, Chappie also stars Dev Patel of Slumdog Millionaire fame and Sharlto Copley as the motion capture performer. With a star studded cast and a director boasting an impressive filmic resume behind it, Chappie is full of promise and potential so don’t miss it!
