District 9 sounds like it’s going to be great. We’ve gotten lots of sleepers in the past few years – think Taken and Children of Men – and this sounds like another amazing action/sci-fi film with lots of brains.
The reviews are great and the movie, based on the short film you see here, has a fascinating premise: aliens land in Africa and suffer under intergalactic apartheid. The aliens themselves are “worker drones” with little apparent free will – until they revolt.
I may leave my house tomorrow to see this. You?
