We’ve got a pretty cool event coming up. So cool in fact, that we thought a little advance warning was necessary. Not only are Collider and Complex holding an early screening of Chappie on Wednesday, March 4th in New York City, but we are beyond thrilled to announce that there will also be a Q&A with director Neill Blomkamp, producer Simon Kinberg and stars Hugh Jackman, Sigourney Weaver, Sharlto Copley and Dev Patel. You don’t need me to tell you this is an incredible line-up of talent, but just wait until you see the full feature.
Here’s how this is going to work. This is just some advance notice. Keep an eye out for another Chappie screening article later today, which will explain how you can score tickets to the event. Keep in mind that there’s a very small window between participating in the giveaway and getting confirmed for the screening. We’ll start accepting ticket requests later today and then will contact all the winners tomorrow, so get ready!
Here’s the official synopsis for Chappie:
In the near future, crime is patrolled by an oppressive mechanized police force. But now, the people are fighting back. 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. As powerful, destructive forces start to see Chappie as a danger to mankind and order, they will stop at nothing to maintain the status quo and ensure that Chappie is the last of his kind.
