"After being kidnapped by two criminals during birth, Chappie becomes the adopted son in a strange and dysfunctional family. Chappie is preternaturally gifted, one of a kind, a prodigy. He also happens to be a robot."


Jackman joins Sigourney Weaver, Ninja and Yolandi Visser of Die Antwoord, Dev Patel and Sharlto Copley who will play Chappie via motion capture. Chappie is a partnership between Sony Pictures and Media Rights Capital, and is based on Blomkamp's short film Tetra Vaal, which you can see below. The film is currently slated for release on March 27th, 2015.

Same here

I thought Elysuim and District 9 were great movies

But this director loves blowing people up in his movies lol

District 9 was awesome. Elysium was pretty meh and riddled with plot/logic holes.
Reasonnnn - 1/8/2014, 9:30 PM
District 9 = great
Elysium = biggest disappointment of the year, next to Star Trek Into Darkness.

Still looking forward to this though.

District 9 is a fantastic film.
Elysium not so much
Hellboy6666 - 1/8/2014, 9:33 PM
Elysium was my second biggest let down this year behind MOS (yeah I said it) I loved district 9 and expected another unique film with amazing action...what we got was a fairly trite plot and more $&cking shaky cam. Chappie better be pretty [frick]ing amazing or Blomkamp is off my radar.
Jollem - 1/8/2014, 9:33 PM
elysium = great

into darkness = great

iron man 3 = biggest disappointment of the year
Jollem - 1/8/2014, 9:34 PM
elysium had better action, acting, story, plot, music, cgi, set design, costumes, etc. than iron man 3
Ramiel - 1/8/2014, 9:47 PM
District 9 was great. Elysium was blah.
ALmazing - 1/8/2014, 9:48 PM

District 9 is one of my favorite films of all time and Elysium was amazing. Really looking forward to this.
jimoakley666 - 1/8/2014, 10:51 PM
Looking forward to this. I think Jackman would be a good fit with Blomkamp as a director.
BrownandYellowWolvie - 1/8/2014, 11:24 PM
does this police robot and specifically, it's head, remind anyone of Patlabor?!?!
AsianVersionOfET - 1/9/2014, 12:57 AM
Loved District 9, was very disappointed with Elysium....so, I'm not gonna get my hopes up for this.
MarvelsDarkKnight - 1/9/2014, 1:37 AM
District 9 was an amazing film and Elysium was so generic it kinda sucked
Selonian - 1/9/2014, 2:06 AM
Can't wait! Elysium was good but District 9 was better. But Elysium was better than Man of Steel and Iron Man 3.
Nomis1800 - 1/9/2014, 2:12 AM
good actor, very good in prisoners
thewolfx - 1/9/2014, 2:23 AM

That's a pretty weak mullet.
wcwpoet - 1/9/2014, 6:09 AM
District 9 was phenomenal

Elysium uh not so much. I mean I thought it looked beautiful but overall it was a huge disappointment.
plasticman - 1/9/2014, 6:29 AM
My brother's nickname is "Chappie" and he sports a way better mullet than that. That ain't no lie.
Salemdog - 1/9/2014, 6:33 AM
I live in the south and that's not even close to a mullet. What Nomis showed was true to form.
marvel72 - 1/9/2014, 7:03 AM

BaronZemo1 - 1/9/2014, 7:56 AM

Gtfo elysium was awesome
DrunkenNukem - 1/9/2014, 8:39 AM
Neil has to direct a Green Lantern movie or Hawkman..of course it will never happen...
TheFable - 1/9/2014, 11:12 AM
@nicipoo... What kind ekse ?
fettastic - 1/9/2014, 11:54 AM
I equate Blomkamp with Aranofsky. Both have genius in them, but have yet to make their masterpiece. With each successive film they get closer, but it's a bit frustrating.

At least Aranofsky keeps jumping genres (to be fair I haven't seen Black Swan). Blomkamp seems to want to keep remaking the same film so far. This still does nothing to dispell that he's doing it again.
RandyBobandy - 1/9/2014, 12:33 PM
This will be much better than Elysium. Too much stiff stale acting, mostly on the parts of the "bad guys" in Elysium made it boring. Remember, this is supposed to be a sci-fi "comedy" of sorts though, and is starring Ninja an Yolandi of Die Antwoord as themselves, as the gangsters that adopt Chappie. They're weird as shit in their music (which lets try to remember is performance art, look up MaxNORMAL if you don't think so). It's going to be a big surprise to a lot of people when this flick comes out I think.
RandyBobandy - 1/9/2014, 12:40 PM
This is actually the first BTS pic from Chappie Ror, it's Ninja in his gear, from the Die Antwoord facebook page.

Hope it's better than Elysium.
