Coming Soon to a Theater Near You....


Here is the Storyline from the IMDb...

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. Written by Sony Pictures Entertainment

Who wouldn't want to see this? In theaters 3/16.

Old School Robot Poster

My pal, "erco," Eric Ostendorff, just updated his avatar on the Parallax Forums. He used as his image the one from a cool poster that can be found here. Pretty neat, eh?
