CHAPPIE Trailer and Poster: Hugh Jackman Stars in Neill Blomkamp's New Film


The first trailer and poster for the sci-fi action thriller "Chappie" have been released. Directed by Neill Blomkamp ("District 9"), the film is the story of Chappie (Sharlto Copley), the first robot ever created with the ability to think and feel for himself. Chappie's journey will be influenced by his surroundings, ultimately molding what he will become at the end of this journey. Judging from the trailer the movie won't really be just an action thriller, but also a character study much like Blomkamp's "District 9" was. The trailer contains some action but for the most part focuses on Chappie's "coming-of-age" story. The film also stars Hugh Jackman, Dev Patel, Ninja, Yo-Landi Vi$$er, Jose Pablo Cantillo and Sigourney Weaver.

"Chappie" opens in theaters on March 27, 2015.

Check out the trailer and poster after the jump.

Official Synopsis
"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."
