I’m so excited for this movie it’s crazy. Elysium is the best film I’ve seen in 2013 so far, and Neill Blomkamp has been cemented in my mind as a master storyteller. So I’m incredibly happy to see this film now has a release date that I can mark on my calendar (and yes, I actually have).
The film is opening in 2015 (which I feel should be officially dubbed, the year of Badass), but will be hitting on March 27, 2015. So it won’t be hidden in the already crowded Summer season. With filming expected to begin as early as this year, I’m already giddy with anticipation for the film.
Chappie tells the story of a robot imbued with artificial intelligence who is stolen by two local gangsters who want to use him for their own nefarious purposes.
