When Chappie, the latest film from Neil Blomkamp (District 9, Elysium) coming out March 6th, starts to get a community art project from the Poster Posse, you know its a sign that the first event film of the year has arrived.

There is something about this robot built from mismatched contiguous pieces of clinking clanking junk that resonates with this artist coalition.

Perhaps it is the way this scrap bucket bucket of a movie built from recycled A.I. movie plots and themes resonates with the various artistic styles that make up the Poster Posse?

Maybe it is because the robot Chappie was raised by a local gang? Like them, a gang of no-goods and outcasts who find the chance in this little naive box of bolts (or brushes and pixels in the Poster Posse case) to be the good father they never had and do the good works that their talents can let them achieve.

Hey, art is, to a certain extent, about seeing and presenting old things in new ways.

No one complained but everyone cried, when Steven Spielberg essentially did the same thing with E.T.

The Poster Posse released this project in two phases. All of the art is combined in the collection below.
