Chappie on Blu-Ray and DVD in June


Finally Neill's latest movie is coming to Blu-Ray.

Very Angry Bird that I missed CHAPPIE in the theatre. The film cost approx. $49 million and it has made back its money at the box office. It's almost out of theatres. The good news is we won't have to wait long to watch it in HD at home.

I'm thinking CHAPPIE will make it up on the DVD / Blu-Ray market. Rated R did not help the film stay longer in theaters. However for the Neill B. fans we are glad he kept it rated R. You can still catch CHAPPIE in a few places around the U.S.. The film has made around $84 million at the box office. Not bad.

CHAPPIE will be released on Blu-ray and DVD from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment on June 16, 2015.

Chappie is  Neill Blomkamp's third feature-length film as director. He wrote the screenplay along with his wife Terri Tatchell, who also co-wrote District 9. Filming began at the end of October 2013 in Johannesburg, South Africa. Filming was completed in February 2014. Re-shooting for the film took place in British Columbia, Canada in April 2014.

The name of the weapons company in Chappie - "Tetravaal" - is a reference to Blomkamp's 2003 short film of the same name, which centers on a police robot in Johannesburg with a similar design to Chappie. Blomkamp has said that Chappie is "basically based" on Tetra Vaal.[11] Blomkamp also employed a robot with a similar design in his 2005 shortTempbot, and both Tempbot and his 2006 short/advertisement Yellow deal with a thinking and learning robot which tries to assimilate into society.
