Must Watch: Neill Blomkamp's District 9 Teaser Trailer!
Now this is the trailer I know I've been waiting to see forever! Sony has finally debuted the first teaser trailer for District 9, the upcoming alien feature from first-time filmmaker Neill Blomkamp. The project is produced and developed by Peter Jackson, but not directed by him. We first wrote about District 9 last year after returning from Comic-Con, as there is a huge viral game in the works surrounding the film and a mysterious corporation called MNU (Multi-National United). Let's just say that you need to watch this trailer, as it'll surprise a lot of you, since no one knows what to expect. Could this be the next Cloverfield?

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.
