Apparently the success of Apex Legends has fans asking Blomkamp if he'd be willing to see the title character from his robotic sci-fi romp Chappie end up in the game. His […]
Neill Blomkamp's Chappie is a pretty devisive film. While a lot of people think it is a bit of a misfire, it does have a bit of a cult following. I saw it grace lower down on a handful film of the year lists last year, for example. To illustrate, it seems one fan is […]

As we've known for a good while,the title role in Neill Blomkamp's Chappie has gone to Sharlto Copley. He'll be playing the role of a law enforcement robot through performance capture.
I get the feeling that this is going to be something almost totally different from Blomkamp's previous films.
