Default District 9

New Peter Jackson project. Trailer and interactive guide to the D-9 world is in link. Looks pretty neat and will be out this Summer.

http://www.d-9.com/

Make sure you close the trailer after you're done watching it to see the rest of the cool D-9 stuff.

looks very dope but the alien looks somewhat generic, kind of like a hybrid between alien and predator. i was hoping for a new look.

definitely seems rad conceptually.

I get the feeling like they want to get that mystery buzz going over what the alien looks like. Kind of like when in Signs, you don't see the alien really well untill the end of the movie but I hope it actually looks somewhat interesting and isn't as big of a letdown as like... Signs. If they are going to have the audacity to blur out the alien's face in the trailer instead of just using creative camera angles to obscure it, it better look really awesome. When I watch the trailer, I keep imagining that little paunched blue alien from the Phantom Menace... and it better be more awesome than that.

Your posts are well thought out. You continue to make interesting observations/comments. That's somewhat of a rarity here. Who are you?

Never. But I think this is really getting offtopic. Now if you were suggesting I was a ******-mouthed alien... well then yeah, that might be a little more on topic.

I like the look of this film. It definitly grabs my attention better than other alien films. The trailer was cool and it looks like this film could be something very good.

Saw the preview while seeing x men. Thought it might be the new Halo movie because Peter Jackson is suppose to make that but it wasn't.

This movie looks awesome.

I seem to notice a striking resemblance to the alien space crafts in Independence Day, and it bothers me. A lot.
