Comfortably nestling in the nougat centre between Robocop and Short Circuit, is Neill Blomkamp’s A.I. action flick Chappie. Clearly as a filmmaker, Blomkamp has found his niche and is more than happy to stay in it.
In the meantime, you’ve got Hugh Jackman as the villain of the piece along with his boss played by Sigourney Weaver. Dev Patel (tired of Best Exotic Marigold sequels) as the inventor, and a mo-capped Sharlto Copley as the title character, humanities first A.I. robot.
The entire package looks handsome and well put together, even if it feels we’ve been over this ground many times before. Check out the full trailer below.
