26Jul District 9 Trailer Posted by: Mark Newton in film 3 Comments Now this looks rather appealing… [youtube:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VjihaK7HfGs]
I couldn’t resist clicking on the trailer as it had a transformer in it (every male between 25-35 was conditioned at birth to have this response) and it looks rather cool. No clear cut good/bad guys and a nice mixture of “real” camera-work mixed in with SFX. Is it set in South Africa, I wonder ?
Yeah, I think it is. Probably a statement on apartheid in there…
Not sure how well a sci-fi film with a message may go down in general these days, which is a shame as that’s what good sci-fi should do.
The South African accent made me remember “Charlie Jade” an excellent sci-fi show on pretty much every level.
