"It was really tough, it felt like I was at war..." hmv.com talks to Neill Blomkamp about Chappie

South African director Neill Blomkamp is no stranger to futuristic concepts, having been in the director's chair for films like District 9 and Elysium and recently taken up the mantle for the next movie in Ridley Scott's Alien franchise, but his latest film, Chappie, sees him tackling the subject of artificial intelligence.

Dev Patel stars as the genius behind a series of new AI-powered police robots helping reduce crime on the streets of Johannesburg, but in Chappie he has gone one step further and created a sentient robot able to think and feel for itself.

We caught up with the director to discuss being back in his homeland and working on the new film. Check out the video below...

 

 

Chappie is available as an hmv exclusive steelbook and Blu-ray from Monday July 6th and will be released on DVD the following week on July 13th. You can pre-order both using the link at the top right of this page...
