Check These Out: Photos from Neill Blomkamp's District 9
Now this is how I like it - no big reveals, no name actors, everything is still a big mystery! Sony has officially released three photos from Neill Blomkamp's District 9 that I wanted to share today. I honestly hope they're the only three photos we see before this comes out in August, although I doubt that'll be the case. The first one, which we featured before, shows Sharlto Copley as Wikus, a Multi-National United agent who becomes infected by alien biotechnology. I really think Sony is doing a great job building up hype for this, I just hope they don't reveal too much as it gets closer. I love how mysterious it is, so keep it that way Sony!
An extraterrestrial race forced to live in slum-like conditions in Johannesburg, South Africa suddenly find a "kindred spirit" in a government agent that is exposed to their mysterious biotechnology.
District 9 is both written and directed by first-timer Neill Blomkamp, a South African filmmaker who previously directed the awesome Halo: Arms Race shorts. The screenplay was co-written by Blomkamp and writing partner Terri Tatchell. This project is based on Blomkamp's short film Alive in Joburg, which can be seen online here. Sony will be bringing District 9 to theaters everywhere on August 14th this summer.
