Chappie Gets R-Rating



Possibly to the the surprise of some, Neill Blomkamp's Chappie movie gets an R-rating.

The trailers revealed what looked to be more of a PG-13 rating as we see what looks to be a friendly robot; however, we do see Chappie take up arms, and more than likely the film will have some vulgar language.

Blomkamp's previous films, District 9 and Elysium, were rated R as well, so maybe it's not all that much of a surprise.

The good news is that if you thought Chappie was more of a kids movie due to the posters and trailers, it's obviously not.

Amazon's Box Office Mojo reporte the rating.

Chappie has a March 6, 2015 release starring Hugh Jackman, Sigourney Weaver, Sharlto Copley, Dev Patel, Ninja, Yolandi Visser, Jose Pablo Cantillo and BrandonAuret.


After being kidnapped by two criminals during birth, Chappie becomes the adopted son in a strange and dysfunctional family. Chappie is preternaturally gifted, one of a kind, a prodigy. He also happens to be a robot.
