A Robot Fights for His Right to Live in the Latest Chappie Trailer

The second trailer for the upcoming sci-fi movie Chappie gives us some background on the smart lil badass robot who just wants to live, man.


Things we learn in this trailer:

  • Slumdog Millionaire is Chappie's dad.
  • Anderson Cooper will still be alive in 2016.
  • Sigourney Weaver is not down with hyper-intelligent, cute-as-shit robot prodigies.

"Destroy that robot! Burn it to ash!" she yells.

Written and directed by Neill Blomkamp, the man behind District 9, Chappie stars Hugh Jackman, Dev Patel, and Ninja and Yo-Landi Vi$$er from South African electro-rap duo Die Antwoord. It premieres March 6.

This movie looks awesome.


Holy shit. We get it. Enough.

Aliens are persecuted. Great. Didn't need two more identical, preachy movies.

Mexicans are persecuted. Insert aging female star as baddy.

Robots are persecuted. Insert (different) aging female star as baddy.

What the fuck? Why not just make a Dances with Wolves / Avatar mash-up, next?
