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.

Synopsis:

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.
