“I Am Consciousness. I Am Alive. I Am Chappie.” This new second trailer looks awesome! Written and directed by Neill Blomkamp, the man behind District 9, Chappie stars Hugh Jackman, Dev Patel, and Ninja and Yo-Landi Vi$$USer from South African electro-rap duo Die Antwoord. It premieres March 12 in Australia.

The second trailer for the upcoming sci-fi gives us some background on the smart lil badass robot who just wants to live, man.

Things we learn in this trailer:

  • Neil from The Newsroom is Chappie’s dad.
  • Anderson Cooper will still be alive in 2016.
  • Sigourney Weaver is not down with hyper-intelligent, cute-as-shit robot prodigies.

“Destroy that robot! Burn it to ash!” she yells.
