District 9: Slumming It on Earth

Posted by Michael Pinto on May 2, 2009 in Cinema |

District 9 sort of reminds me of the 1984 TV series V and the film Brother from Another Planet (which also came out in ’84). The plot of District 9 features an extraterrestrial race that forced to live in slum-like conditions on Earth. The film will be released on August 14th and is produced by Peter Jackson and directed by Neil Blomkamp who has a background in short films and advertisements.

By the way if you play around with their website you’ll find all sorts of interesting stuff — the site is designed to give you the experience of exploring websites from the District 9 world. For example n one section I found posters supporting alien rights:
