If you saw X-Men Origins: Wolverine or have been keeping up with Screen Rant, you probably had a chance to view the very cool and unique trailer for the upcoming documentary-style sci-fi film, District 9, which hit the internet just short of a week ago.
If you haven’t, you definitely should – This is something you may want to look out for.
District 9 is the super-secret sci-fi project that director Neill Blomkamp and producer Peter Jackson have been working on since the Halo movie they were supposed to make was thrown on the back-burner.
The original trailer for District 9 had an interrogation/interview scene with an alien who’s face was blurred out – as if it were a real documentary and they were hiding its identity. We also had no idea what the insect-like alien was saying. That all changes in this version of the trailer which removes the blur from the alien’s face and presents us with subtitles to translate the alien’s … sounds?
Check it out and see what you think:

This trailer has me hooked and I’m very interested in seeing this later in the summer.
The image up top is from /Film and depicts a character from the movie named Wikus, played by Sharlto Copley. Wikus is a Multi-National United (MNU) agent who becomes infected with some sort of alien virus/bio-technology. Hence, the crazy eye. Wikus is on the run from the government and makes his way into the non-human District 9, where the alien insect-folk have been forced to live for the past 30 years.
For more cool info on this trailer and the movie, check out the viral site MNU Spreads Lies. It seems that the aliens want us to see things from their perspective.
Is this a movie you’ll seek out this summer?
District 9 opens for all humans only, on August 14, 2009.
