A bunch of new clips have recently appeared online for the two movies that will effectively cap off the summer of 2009: District 9 and Inglourious Basterds. Both are highly-anticipated movies around these parts, and thankfully we won’t have to wait much longer before they get released in theaters.

District 9

This was one of the hottest films at Comic-Con this year, with just about everybody who managed to see the super-secret screening of the movie saying nothing but positive things about it. These new clips basically show off the news footage angle of the movie, which is said to be mixed with the sci-fi/action alien stuff. First time director Neil Blomkamp recently described the movie as a mix of traditional cinematic storytelling and documentary and news footage. A unique and interesting way to tell an alien story, I think you’ll agree.

The first clip is basically an extension of a part of the trailer we saw where a main character gets infected with an alien substance. The other two clips are the aforementioned news footage, as well as “talking heads” style documentary footage, explaining the aliens’ arrival and the like as if it were actually real life. Check out the three clips below, courtesy of EW, Yahoo and Sony Pictures (via YouTube):

I really dig the mix of documentary/news footage and regular storytelling they’re employing within District 9. I don’t know if it’s just me but I get a strong Cloverfield vibe from this movie (but in a good way). Not just because of the “real life” feeling it gives off, but also because of the whole viral marketing thing that’s been going on.

Inglourious Basterds

This is another one of those movies we’ve not only covered quite extensively here at Screen Rant, but also are highly anticipating. This is for a number of reasons: the movie looks awesome (we have it from a VERY close source that it’s pretty damn good); it’s the latest film from Quentin Tarantino; and above all it’s about soldiers kicking Nazi ass. What more do you want from a movie?! icon razz New Clips: District 9 And Inglourious Basterds

There’s a whopping nine new clips that have recently made their way online over at I’ve included the clips which show off the new stuff. A bit of variation never hurts. Check the clips out below:

I’m sure there can’t be too much more stuff (posters, trailers, clips…) released for Inglourious Basterds, as it’s just about to hit theaters. I’m not surprised the Weinsteins have been pushing this one so hard – with the financial bomb of Grindhouse (their previous venture with Tarantino) they really do need as many people in the seats as possible.

What do you think of these latest clips for these highly anticipated movies?

District 9 hits US theaters this Friday, August 14th, with a UK release of September 4th following that.

Inglourious Basterds is released everywhere on August 21st, 2009.

  1. Okay, am I the only one on the planet who doesn’t give a rat’s ass about Inglorious Basterds?

  2. At least IB is something different, and from what I hear the basterds play second string to the main story of Shoshana, the girl in the first clip. The story is really about her.

  3. with today’s movie prices i probably won’t see both in the theater. if i had to pick, i would see district 9 in the theater and IB i would rent on dvd

  4. If the Americans aren’t even going to watch Inglourious Basterds, then why should anyone else? The Americans don’t even know what a jew or a nazi is for crying out loud, how are we to believe that they’ve just “become” jewish? For the purpose of a movie? By magic? By some alien American technology? You’ve got to be joking.

  5. Just going to let that pass.
