Chappie On Blu-ray And DVD From Sony Pictures Home Entertainment On June 16

DVD & Blu-ray Release Report, Ralph Tribbey
OK, we get it, writer/director Neill Blomkamp’s District 9 was about South African race relations dressed up as a sci-fi thriller.   Elysium was about the so-called “one-percenters” taking everything for themselves and leaving the rest to starve … dressed up as a sci-fi thriller.   

His latest, Chappie, due out on DVD and Blu-ray from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment on June 16 is more of the same.   And judging from the domestic box office take of just $31.3 million genre fans are onto Blomkamp’s one-note dreary samba — distorted and unjust political landscapes presented as cutting-edge sci-fi.    

For the record, the ARR is a quick-to-market 88 days.

Bonus features an alternate ending, eight featurettes and an extended scene.
