Full trailer for Neill Blomkamp's Chappie starring Hugh Jackman

The full trailer for Neill Blomkamp's dark and dirty Short Circuit remake CHAPPIE has arrived and can be seen below. Unlike the first teaser, which was sweet and optimistic, this preview strikes a bit of a nihilistic tone, with more focus on Hugh Jackman's antagonist and the other, deadlier robots in the film. (Blomkamp's fascination with mechanized weaponry is clearer than ever, and I think we can formally count ROBOCOP among his main inspirations for CHAPPIE.)

Also starring Dev Patel, Sigourney Weaver and Sharlto Copley (as the titular character), CHAPPIE goes like this:

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. But there's one thing that makes Chappie different from anyone else: he is a robot. The first robot with the ability to think and feel for himself. His life, his story, will change the way the world looks at robots and humans forever.

CHAPPIE opens March 6th.
