District 9

A while back I posted the trailer for the forthcoming Peter Jackson movie, District-9.

This movie and the concept behind it intrigues me. I saw the trailer for it at Terminator Salvation and wanted to see it, rather than the terminator movie I was at (though, I admit I did love TS. Loved it).

Jackson has just released an extended trailer with more detailed scenes of the aliens, their ship, weapons, and technology and a bit of the back story:

I find this fascinating on so many levels.

  1. The movie looks great. Peter Jackson actually picked the direct, Neill Blomkamp, to direct the Halo movie that never got off the ground. District 9 was based on a short film called Alive in Joburg based on the same premise. I guess they thought it was good enough for a full length movie.


  2. I've seen Alive in Joburg (it's available in various places on the internet), and I thought it was extremely cool. I'm really looking forward to this.

  3. That does look totally awesome - my youngest tells me I've seen the trailer before but I don't remember it. Looking forward to it!

  4. Looks like they totally came through on the combat suits, which makes me happy. Awesome!
