Just a short blog post on District 9, An upcoming new movie by Peter Jackson (did I hear Gandalf?)
Here is a synopsis:
"Thirty years ago, aliens made first contact with Earth. Humans waited for the hostile attack, or the giant advances in technology. Neither came. Instead, the aliens were refugees, the last survivors of their home world. The creatures were set up in a makeshift home in South Africa’s District 9 as the world’s nations argued over what to do with them.
Now, patience over the alien situation has run out. Control over the aliens has been contracted out to Multi-National United (MNU), a private company uninterested in the aliens’ welfare – they will receive tremendous profits if they can make the aliens’ awesome weaponry work. So far, they have failed; activation of the weaponry requires alien DNA.
The tension between the aliens and the humans comes to a head when an MNU field operative, Wikus van der Merwe (Sharlto Copley), contracts a mysterious virus that begins changing his DNA. Wikus quickly becomes the most hunted man in the world, as well as the most valuable – he is the key to unlocking the secrets of alien technology. Ostracized and friendless, there is only one place left for him to hide: District 9."
Well, truth to be told. Before I watched the trailer, I was thinking: "Oh yeah, another movie which has aliens in it."
Hmm, you can't blame me. I had big hopes for transformers 2 which was nice but short on story.
Anyways, the trailer really made it interesting so be sure to watch it. It's up there if you happen to miss it which is impossible unless you thought that was a picture.
The reason because I posted this because of Nuffnang, the blogger-friendly advertiser and here is the slogan I put in the site:
"I want to be in District 9 because I want to see how far humanity can achieve the climax of civilisation."
I hope that you guys are as thrilled as me cause I'm going to watch it.(cross fingers and pray for free tickets)
