First Chappie Clips Show Hugh Jackman's Hatred For Sentient Robots

Here are the first-ever clips from Neill Blomkamp's Chappie movie, which are laughably devoid of any actual scenes with the titular robot. But what they do have is plenty of villains and Hugh Jackman with a mullet.


Basically, the above clip sets up the near-future world where robot scouts patrol the streets, and are almost indestructible, thus making them great human shields, etc., etc. This is what the new world is like, and these scouts are where Chappie will come from. Below is Hugh Jackman as an Australian guy who wants to murder Chappie because he's alive, so he can get the government to use his giant powerloader machine to kill criminals. Not arrest, straight up murder. Enjoy.

Elysium was about as subtle as a dick up the nose, and District 9 only slightly less so. That said, as flawed as his movies may be, I am so totally down with anything Neill Blomkamp does. I love his world building, his vision and how even his failures are failures of trying too much than too little.

He's like a straight-faced Verhoeven. Not satire, but you get the twin pleasures of socially aware genre movies and robot/cyborg/alien fights.
