New trailer and poster for District 9 director’s next movie, Chappie

District 9 is considered one of the top sci-fi movies out there. That movie has helped director Neill Blomkamp with more opportunities, like directing and writing Elysium starring Matt Damon. I personally was disappointed with Elysium, but here’s hoping that he can knock it out of the ballpark again with his next movie, Chappie, starring Sharlto Copley as the robot just trying to live life among humans. Along with the poster revealed recently, we now have the first trailer via Entertainment Weekly.

Check it out below.

Chappie is kidnapped by two criminals, played by rap group Die Antwoord, and becomes part of their family. After watching this, it kind of reminds me of the movie Jack, where Robin Williams’ character was an outcast trying to fit in.

Chappie stars Sharlto Copley, Dev Patel, Ninja and Yo-Landi Vi$$er, Jose Pablo Cantillo, with Sigourney Weaver and Hugh Jackman. The script was written by Neill Blomkamp & Terri Tatchell.

Chappie hits theaters on March 27, 2015.
