The Trailer for ‘Chappie’ Is the Biggest Pile of WTF

Chappie tells the story of a humanoid abducted by criminals at birth. It stars Hugh Jackman, Sigourney Weaver, Sharlto Copley (of course) and Dev Patel. The film is directed by Neill Blomkamp. Not that strange until you realize Chappie is a robot and its abductors are Ninja and Yo-Landi from Die Antwoord.

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.

This is the biggest mindfuck I’ve ever seen. Yo-Landi wasn’t kidding when she sang, “Neill Blomkamp’s making me a movie star” in “Baby’s on Fire.”
