District 9

by David Prassel on Jul.02, 2009, under Uncategorized

This trailer took me by surprise. I’ve heard rumors about this studio project under Peter Jackson’s wing (Lord of the Rings Trilogy, King Kong) and saw a first glimpse at the teaser trailer at a sneak peak way back when X-men Origins: Wolverine was first released in theaters a couple of months back.

The film is being directed by newcomer (to most) Neill Blomkamp. He was born and raised in South Africa and is an extremely unique director with an extremely unique vision. Both Neill Blomkamp and Peter Jackson were apart of the Halo Movie that was underway until it was canceled / put on a hiatus due to the studios being wary of Neill’s film directing skills and lack of a resume.

This is where District 9 stems from. Peter Jackson believed in his protege so much that he founded and backed this project (District 9) in order to get Neills name out there and to resume development on the Halo movie.

Please, do yourself the favor and watch the trailer below:

“I want everyone watching this right now..

to learn from what has happened.”

District 9 will be opening nation wide on August 14th, 2009.
