Right now. No two ways about it. Stop what you’re doing and press “play.” Chappie is the feel-good robo-thriller from District 9 director Neill Blomkamp starring South African rappers Ninja and Yo-Landi Vi$$er (of Die Antword), Dev Patel, and Hugh Jackman (never thought I’d write THAT sentence!).
Every child comes into the world full of promise, and none more so than Chappie: he is gifted, special, a prodigy. Like any child, Chappie will come under the influence of his surroundings – some good, some bad – and he will rely on his heart and soul to find his way in the world and become his own man. But there’s one thing that makes Chappie different from anyone else: he is a robot. The first robot with the ability to think and feel for himself. His life, his story, will change the way the world looks at robots and humans forever. (via Coming Soon)
Yeah, so imagine a reboot of Short Circuit – but starring Yo-Landi Vi$$er instead of Ally Sheedy. FABULOUS, right? I fink u freeky, Chappie.
