I’m not sure how District 9 was under the radar for anyone. Peter Jackson protege Neill Blomkamp was attached to the Halo movie, and when that tanked District 9 was quickly revealed as his actual (or new, take your pick) project. The trailer has justifiably caused a stir, and now there’s a poster.
What comes to mind, looking at this image? Resistance is futile. Maybe it’s just me, but all I can see when I gaze upon this alien shooting range target is Sony’s PS3 Resistance franchise. Which is too bad, because I love the idea of the film (aliens interred in a camp in South Africa) and I like the idea behind this image quite a bit. And if some of the PS3 sales figures are accurate, game nerds are the only ones who’ll see echoes of Resistance here.
