Entertainment Weekly has debuted the first trailer for Chappie, Neill Blomkamp's highly anticipated follow-up to Elysium.
Opening March 6, the sci-fi action-adventure stars Sharlto Copley as the voice of Chappie, a robot imbued with artificial intelligence who’s stolen by two local criminals, becoming the adopted son in a dysfunctional family.
The film also stars Hugh Jackman, Dev Patel, Sigourney Weaver, Ninja, Yolandi Visser, Jose Pablo Cantillo and Brandon Auret.
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.
