District 9

Perhaps it’s just me but a movie with aliens dropping in on planet earth always make me become intrested. No matter really what the story is there is something with the thought of the unknown knocking on our door.

Anyhow, there is a movie coming up named ‘District 9’ directed by Beill Blomkamp which I have glanced at for a while. It has a spread out releasedate depending on where you live (full list at http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1136608/releaseinfo) between August 13 and October 30. I must admit that the fact that it is promoted as “A Peter Jackson movie” had me a bit worried in the beginning but after I saw the trailer I got my hope back.

Story in short is about a spaceship holding aliens which come to rest over the city of Johannesburg in the early eighties. The inhabitants of the ship is kept in confinement down at earth by the South African government and the story itself feels quite alot like the story of apartheid. The movie is created as an mockumentary or a false documentary which is liked by a few and disliked by almost as many. Personally I can’t wait for it to be released, looking forwad to see how they solved the same old story once again.
