On March 6, Chappie will hit theaters across the country. The sci-fi thriller is about a city whose police force is made up of robots, Chappie, one of which is stolen and given human emotions. Chappie is later considered to be a danger to society and authorities go out of their way to destroy Chappie.

In order to survive, Chappie must learn to fight to the bitter end.

The movie is rate R for violence, language and brief nudity. Sharlto Copley is the voice of Chappie. Other actors are Dev Patel as Deon Wilson, Jose Pablo Cantillo as Yankie, Hugh Jackman as Vincent Moore, Sigourney Weaver as Michael Bradley, Brandon Auret, Jason Cope, Johnny Selma and many others. CNN’s Anderson Coopers makes a short cameo where he appears as himself. The music is by Hans Zimmer and the cinematography is by Trent Opaloch. It is distributed by Columbia Pictures.

The movie was directed by Neill Blomkamp and written by Terri Tatchell and Blomkamp. Chappie is the third feature length film directed by Blomkamp. He and his wife, Tatchell, wrote District 9 together. The crew first started filming Chappie towards the end of October 2013 in Johannesburg, South Africa and finished in February of 2014.

On a side note, I personally have no intention on seeing this movie but if nothing else, it might be fun to see on the IMAX for the sake of special effects.
