Neill Blomkamp had a tough go last summer with the debacle of Elysium, and I’m hoping he can rebound with his junior effort. Here’s some teaser images to whet our proverbial whistles!
This has promise. The images have a dirty, gritty feel to them, which I expect from Blomkamp, and the premise (from an earlier Sony press release) has me plenty curious:
Chappie tells the story of a robot imbued with artificial intelligence who is stolen by two local gangsters who want to use him for their own nefarious purposes. The film will star Sharlto Copley as the voice of Chappie, with Ninja and Yolandi Visser, voices of the South African Zef counter-culture movement and members of rap-rave duo Die Antwoord, as the two gangsters.
At any rate, here’s some of the images that our Dread crew managed to snap live from the SDCC ’14 floor.
While there’s nothing scheduled at Comic Con this year, Chappie will star Hugh Jackman and Sigourney Weaver. Watch this space, and we’ll bring you more as we have it.
