Trivia: In one of the trailers for this movie (, Michelle (Sigourney Weaver) delivers the lines, "A thinking robot could be the end of mankind. Destroy that robot! Burn it to ash." This is possibly a reference to her role in Alien (1979) where a thinking robot (named Ash) protected the alien at the expense of the "expendable" crew.

Trivia: Co-writer and director Neill Blomkamp filmed the gangster Hippo's hideout at his childhood home.

Trivia: The film co-stars Ninja and Yo-Landi from the controversial rap group Die Antwoord. Director Neil Blomkamp actually wanted Ninja to star in his previous film "Elysium," but Ninja turned it down because he was uncomfortable with the idea of doing an American accent in his first major film role. Ninja and Yo-Landi reportedly did all of the murals and much of the set decoration for their home in the film.


Trivia: "Chappie" was originally conceived as the first film in a trilogy. However, plans for any sequels were dropped after the film underperformed at the box office.


Continuity mistake: At the end, the TV newscaster reports that 150,000 reserve human forces have been activated. But the crawl strip at the bottom of the screen reads "150,000 RESERVED human forces," a different meaning altogether. (01:59:00)

Question: Is there any significance (or Easter eggs) in the book titles on the bookshelves in Sigourney Weaver's office? One of the titles was "The Grand Tour", another was "Green." I couldn't make out the other titles.
