More New District 9 Viral Posters and Banners Discovered

District 9 Viral Poster

I'm back again with your weekly update on all things District 9. There's not much to report on this week, although I have it on good authority that we should be seeing something very exciting next week. However, I do want to feature this new bus shelter poster as seen below (via Trailer Addict). I've actually seen this on display around Los Angeles, in addition to some of the new banners seen beneath it, as Sony has been covering major cities with as much of this viral advertising as they can (and I like it so far). This is a cleaner version of the target found on the District 9 poster and I think it's a much more effective design by itself.

Click on any of the banners above to head over to IMPAwards where you can see a complete collection of all the various billboards, banners, bus shelters, and posters that Sony has made for District 9 so far.

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.

While it's said that you can't jusdge book by its title or a movie by its name, I really dig the name. Sort of reminds me of like a top secret agency. on Jun 8, 2009

Is that because they lifted the spaceship in the trailer directly from Independence Day?

Question: If the movie takes place in South Africa why is the fine in Dollars instead of Rand?

Being from South Africa, you would think that the Apartheid-esque flavor would turn a lot of people off, especially with the Hollywood distributors.
