Hugh Jackman Fights Robots in New “Chappie” Trailer


I have repeatedly said I want to see Hugh Jackman fighting robots, but this is because I wanted to see him with claws fighting Sentinels.  For some reason he tried and failed in 2011 with “Reel Steel,” and this March it looks as if we will see him try again. This time by fighting a friendly sentient robot.


Neill Blomkamp, known for of “Elysium,” “District 9,” and “Stargate SG1,” will be directing another sci-fi thriller entitled “Chappie.”  The trailer prepares us for the same type of film Blomkamp has directed in the past, but my hope is when you add Sigourney Weaver into a sci-fi it pic it will improve exponentially.  My biggest worry with this film is that it comes only two months before the release of another sentient robot focused film.  I just hope Hollywood does not inundate us with similar themes before May that could cause a decrease in excitement for “Avengers: Age of Ultron”…Now that would be a film with Hugh Jackman fighting robots that I would find acceptable.

Watch the trailer below and tell us what you think.

Mike has spent nearly all his life amassing education, degrees, and most of all overwhelming student debt. And none of it has had to do with film. Minus one film class in college, the only experience he has with film is personal exposure due to sheer enjoyment and entertainment. He writes for partly because of this interest in film, but mostly because he is so narcissistic that he gains great joy from hearing his own opinions. Now that his family and close friends are tired of hearing his opinions he desires to venture out to exhaust new venues with his overly-analytic and trite commentary. Hopefully he finds some success in such blogging, if not, the orderlies will have a lot of writing to clean off of these padded walls.
