From the director of District 9 comes his next creation. Meet Chappie, the only one who can save us this Spring, as a police state grows out of control. Sony Pictures has released the first TV spot for Neill Blomkamp's latest sci-fi epic, which pits an innocent robot against a growing army of drones gone awry.

Every child comes into the world full of promise, and none more so than Chappie: he is gifted, special, a prodigy. Like any child, Chappie will come under the influence of his surroundings - some good, some bad - and he will rely on his heart and soul to find his way in the world and become his own man. But there's one thing that makes Chappie different from anyone else: he is a robot. The first robot with the ability to think and feel for himself. His life, his story, will change the way the world looks at robots and humans forever.

Opening in theaters on March 6, Chappie stars Sharlto Copley, Dev Patel, Ninja and Yo-Landi Vi$$er, Jose Pablo Cantillo, Sigourney Weaver and Hugh Jackman. Check out the latest footage before this thrilling adventure becomes the next big thing in robotic hardware. We're pretty sure you'll want to buy your ticket in advance:
