So maybe the aliens really are bad guys. The newest trailer for Neill Blomkamp’s District 9 reveals a lot more about what to expect from the film. Most importantly, it looks like it’s not a movie about human exploitation of an alien species. Or at least, the aliens are not completely helpless. The new trailer looks like another human vs. alien species battle film. Behold:
This trailer is actually a little disappointing. I had hoped that District 9 was going to go a different direction than Terminator, Transformers, Independence Day and every other machines/aliens versus humans story. It might still be like that, but this trailer seems to imply otherwise.
District 9 comes out in theatres August 14, 2009.
