Chappie Trailer #2

New Trailer for Neill Blomkamp’s Sci-Fi ‘Chappie’ Revealed

The second trailer for Neill Blomkamp’s upcoming film Chappie hit web pages this morning. Whereas the first trailer focused on sentiment, this one shows off the more action-packed, thrilling side of the film, which follows the titular robot as he learns to live despite the controversy surrounding his existence.

Chappie stars Dev Patel (Slumdog Millionaire) as Chappie’s creator, Hugh Jackman as a desperate huckster working against Chappie and his inventor, and Sharlto Copley as the motion-capture performer and voice actor behind that CGI robot.

Copley also starred in Blomkamp’s first two films, District 9 and Elysium. The former established the director as a filmmaker to watch with its unique brand of politically-charged science fiction, while Elysium received mixed reactions from both audiences and critics.

Here’s hoping Blomkamp can recapture the magic with Chappie, which comes out on March 6.
