Film News: District 9

8 Jul

Currently lighting up the internet – or at least the Twitterverse – is the trailer for upcoming US sci-fi film District 9.

According to the blurb on IMDB, an extraterrestrial race forced to live in slum-like conditions on Earth suddenly find a kindred spirit in a government agent that is exposed to their biotechnology.

While that sounds intriguing in itself, the trailer really impresses, offering a tantalising glimpse of what we can expect here in the UK come it’s release date of 4 September. You can head over to Yahoo to see it now.

In the meantime, as pointed out to me by a friend, the director of the movie, Neill Blomkamp also made a short film, Alive in Joburg, upon which the feature is based and I’ve embedded it below the jump.

Take a look at the original District 9 film, Alive in Joburg:
