Check This Out: Awesome New Official District 9 Poster
Sony just debuted another official poster for Neill Blomkamp's District 9 today on Yahoo. The first poster for this was released back in May but I criticized it for its lame purple background and simple design. They must have taken my feedback to heart. Because this is the poster I've been waiting to see! Not only did they get rid of that ugly purple background, but they moved that badass spaceship front and center. This is exactly the District 9 poster I want to have up on my wall, especially when it turns out to be as awesome as we're all hoping. A new trailer will be out on Wednesday, in the meantime, check out this new viral video.
An extraterrestrial race forced to live in slum-like conditions in Johannesburg, South Africa suddenly find a "kindred spirit" in a government agent from MNU 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.
