If you don’t know who Johnny 5 is, then perhaps it’s best you don’t know. I only threw it out there for those of us that are old enough to remember it. Seriously, if you tried to watch Short Circuit without being in the right age demographic when it released you won’t get it.

But, you might get Chappie.

Chappie is a new movie from Neill Blomkamp (District 9, Elysium) and focuses on a child-like artificially intelligent robot that grows and reacts to the people and environment around it. I do like the main cast though, Hugh Jackman (The Wolverine), Sigourney Weaver (Aliens), Dev Patel (the Newsroom) and Sharlto Copley (Powers) as Chappie. I’ll cross my fingers for more of a District 9 feel from Blomkamp.

Chappie opens in theaters March 6, 2015
