Top 25 Most Anticipated Studio Films of 2015: #2. Neill Blomkamp’s Chappie

14 January 2015 1:00 PM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Chappie

Director: Neill Blomkamp // Writers: Neill Blomkamp, Terri Tatchell

After the unprecedented success of his debut, District 9 (2009), South African director Neill Blomkamp thankfully avoided stepping right into a sequel, instead making his next film, Elysium (2013). Even though it was another grunge dystopia and was less well received, Blomkamp proves to be an innovative genre filmmaker, one of few filmmakers who can do a lot with a small budget and still retain an authorial voice when cast into the studio system. We have high hopes for his latest, which sounds to be a different angle from the filmmaker still working within preferred parameters. Based on his own 2006 short film, Blomkamp’s latest is Chappie, the tale of a robot kidnapped by two criminals and growing up under these strange familial circumstances as he grows into a prodigy. Blomkamp famously cast the members of provocative South African rap-rave group Die Antwoord, »

UK Trailer for Neill Blomkamp's Sci-Fi Action Film Chappie

14 January 2015 8:15 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

There's a good amount of new footage featured in this latest UK trailer for Neill Blomkamp's incredibly cool-looking Chappie. I kind of like that Hugh Jackman plays an asshole villain in this. Most of the characters that he plays are likable, but in this one he comes off as being a major prick. It's a good change for him. Chappie has the potential to be a great film, and I can't wait to see it.

Every child comes into the world full of promise, and none more so than Chappie: he is gifted, special, a prodigy. Like any child, Chappie will come under the influence of his surroundings – some good, some bad – and he will rely on his heart and soul to find his way in the world and become his own man.

Watch: New U.K. Trailer For Neill Blomkamp’s ‘Chappie’ Shows Off More Action, Robots & Mullets

14 January 2015 5:56 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

“I do believe the problem with artificial intelligence is that it’s way too unpredictable,” the mulleted Hugh Jackman says in the new UK trailer for Neill Blomkamp’s sci-fi film “Chappie.” That line is a fine summation of the movie: a nerd inventor creates the first independently thinking and feeling robot, which is stolen by thugs, and then concerned technophobe authorities seek to have it destroyed using the hardware they borrowed from “RoboCop.” “I am consciousness, I am alive, I am Chappie,” the robot voiced by Blomkamp’s “District 9” and “Elysium” star Sharlto Copley says. Unfortunately, he’s not funny… yet. The filmmaker promised a sci-fi comedy —the inclusion of the wacky rap rave duo Die Antwoord in prominent roles was your first clue— but for some reason Sony’s been marketing this movie as a more serious, somber sci-fi film. Maybe that tests better with the kids? »

New TV Spot For 'Chappie'

13 January 2015 9:29 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

On March 6th, the Hugh Jackman-starrer Real Steel 2 will roll into theaters. Wait. No. That's not right. 

The movie in question is Chappie, and far more promising than a sequel to that Shawn Levy film, it's actually the latest film from Neill Blomkamp- the man that gave us District 9 and Elysium. This original sci-fi action film will tell the story of an android named Chappie that is able to feel and think for itself. Shortly after his "birth" he is kidnapped by two criminals and raised as part of a dysfunctional family. Chappie suddenly finds himself in the crosshairs of Jackman's Vincent, who sees the robot as a threat to humanity.

Below is the latest TV spot for the film:

Chappie is played, via motion-capture, by frequent Blomkamp collaborator, Sharlto Copley. The cast also includes sci-fi royalty Sigourney Weaver, and Dev Patel (Slumdog Millionaire, The Newsroom).

19 new comic book TV shows airing in 2015 and beyond

12 January 2015 3:25 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Daredevil, Preacher, Supergirl... Lost track of the zillions of comic book shows to grace our televisions from 2015? Here's our cheat sheet.

It’s a wonderful time to be a TV-binging comic book fan. In fact, if you were a little tactical about your viewing habits (and not too fussy in your Marvel/DC preference), we’re approaching a state where you could probably fill an ‘all the soap operas’ shaped hole in your schedule every day with the stuff of capes, cowls and crime-fighting.

Of course, we already have Arrow, The Flash, Gotham, Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D., Agent Carter, The Walking Dead and – for now – Constantine gracing our schedules. Of those, Arrow, The Flash and The Walking Dead have already been picked up for further seasons, as well. With the exception of Constantine, we wouldn’t be too surprised to hear the rest renewed too.

The fun doesn’t stop there. »
