SDCC 2014: First look at Neill Blomkamp’s Chappie

photoWalking around SDCC this year, fans will get a first look at the highly anticipated new film from District 9 famed director Neill Blomkamp. Neill’s new film, Chappie, stars Hugh Jackman, Sigourney Weaver and Sharlto Copley. Blomkamp’s new sci-fi tale follows the story of a young boy who is kidnapped by two criminals. The two criminals discover that Chappie is gifted and a one of a kind prodigy. He’s also a robot.

Seems pretty interesting, huh? If you happen to be over at the Hard Rock Hotel, you will get a first look at Chappie himself in the elevators. You can see from the images Chappie’s interpretations of events that will transpire in the film. While the film does not have a panel planned for the convention, I wouldn’t put it passed them to at least have some sort of surprise there. If you remember back in 2009, a secret screening was held for District 9 at Comic-Con.

Neill Blomkamp’s Chappie will hit theaters March 6, 2015.
