Neill Blomkamp's third feature film, CHAPPIE, hits theaters early next year, and today Sony has issued the first official teaser poster for the flick. It's a curious look at the titular character, a sentient robot.

Here's the film's strange synopsis:

After being kidnapped by two criminals during birth, Chappie becomes the adopted son in a strange and dysfunctional family. Chappie is preternaturally gifted, one of a kind, a prodigy. He also happens to be a robot.

Blomkamp penned the screenplay with his DISTRICT 9 co-writer, Terri Tatchell. The cast includes Hugh Jackman, Sigourney Weaver, Sharlto Copley, Ninja, Dev Patel and Yo-Landi Visser. The film will be released on March 6, 2015.
