Check This Out: Official Website for District 9 Launched
Sony has launched an official website for the upcoming District 9. This site is not a part of the on-going viral, it's just designed to promote the movie itself. I'm featuring it not only as a way of keeping District 9 in the headlines, but because it's a gorgeous site. When you first launch it, it loads a beautiful panoramic view of the slums that can be rotated in 360°. There are also some photos and info that can be found on the site, but nothing else new (besides what you see above). If you're looking forward to this or just want to see what a beautiful official website should look like, then check it out - district9movie.com. Bravo, Sony!
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.
