Just the other day, we got our best look yet at Neill Blomkamp’s upcoming robotic actioner Chappie in the form of an in depth trailer from Sony Pictures. It provided a wider view of the world of the film, as well as a more in depth look at the plot, and hot on the heels of that reveal comes this new trailer from the U.K.
Released by Yahoo U.K., this video hits many of the same notes as the previous offering, though there is a ton of new footage that we hadn’t seen yet. Chappie’s creator, Deon Wilson (Dev Patel), wants to make a machine that can think and feel, so of course someone finds a way to weaponize his invention, establishing a robotic police force. On the other side is Vincent Moore (Hugh Jackman and his mullet), a rival inventor and former soldier. He thinks artificial intelligence is too unpredictable, so his entry into these sweepstakes is something more akin to a drone, which looks conspicuously like ED-209 from RoboCop. (As has been pointed out repeatedly, there are also numerous similarities with Short Circuit.)
