Chappie, the first robot with the ability to think and feel for himself.

In the near future, crime is patrolled by an oppressive mechanised police force. When one police droid, Chappie, is stolen and given new programming, he becomes the first robot with the ability to think and feel for himself.

Chappie is an American science fiction film directed by Neill Blomkamp. The screenplay, written by Blomkamp and Terri Tatchell, is based on Blomkamp's 2004 short film, Tetra Vaal. The film stars Sharlto Copley (Maleficent), Dev Patel (Slumdog Millionaire), and Academy Award-nominee Hugh Jackman.
