While Elysium might have misfired a little compared to the classic District 9, I'll still look forward to every movie Neil Blomkamp ever makes and Chappie, his latest, just got its first trailer. Goddamn, this movie is going to break hearts.
It looks like Short Circuit mixed with Born Free mixed with ET and at its centre — Chappie, the main character. An adorable robot with revolutionary AI. Apparently the script is 'hilarious', but at the same time this movie appears as though it will feature some pretty heavy themes.
Also, it looks as though Blomkamp is making this movie heavily South African, which I think is a good thing. District 9 was also distinctly South African and it's one of my favourite movies ever.
