Chappie is an upcoming film co-written and directed by Neill Blomkamp, and starring Sharlto Copley, Hugh Jackman, Dev Patel, and Sigourney Weaver, as well "Ninja" and "Yolandi Visser" from the South African rap duo "Die Antwoord." Currently scheduled for released in the U.S. on March 6, 2015, the film is presumably a feature version of Blomkamp's own 2004 short Tetra Vaal, with elements from the 2006 short Tempbot which features a similar-looking robot protagonist.
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.
