Sony PlayStation’s forthcoming entry into the original content arms race, ‘Powers’ has flexed plenty of footage and photos of its impending premiere, but with little sense of how the Brian Michael Bendis superhero drama would be rolled out. Now, Sony has revealed a March start date for the Sharlto Copley-starring ‘Powers,’ including its release schedule and a brand-new poster.
Okay, let’s ask the big question: what the hell is ‘Chappie’? The first trailer made the film look like a slightly goofy and overly sentimental ‘Short Circuit’ riff, with the title robot learning about the world ... while teaching us (blech). The new trailer feels more like director Neill Blomkamp’s previous work, showcasing wacky science fiction ideas and explosive action. In any case, we’re definitely not sold on the film yet based on either trailer.
What are we to make of the 'Chappie' trailer, which looks to promise a funny, thoughtful and original science-fiction tale about a robot who "grows up" in the South African slums? On one hand, it's from the director 'District 9.' On the other hand, that same man also directed 'Elysium.' The fact that the trailer name-drops the former and not the latter gives us hope that this is Neill Blomkamp returning to form after his sophomore misfire.
The 'Chappie' poster seems harmless enough, but it really represents a true make-it-or-break-it point for director Neill Blomkamp and star Sharlto Copley. This one-sheet, which exists simply to introduce the title character of this new science fiction film about a family who "adopts" a robot with ties to the criminal underworld, represents a film that could be the next great exciting genre project ... or the final sign that we all put a little too much faith in the people who made 'District 9.'
It's been a long road getting there, but Brian Michael Bendis' 'Powers' has finally come out of the shadows with a first trailer for the forthcoming PlayStation TV series. The show's New York Comic-Con panel premiered the first footage of the upcoming superhero comic adaptation, with plenty of 'Powers' and stars on display.
