As you may know, we’re pretty excited about Neill Blomkamp’s District 9 here at Film Junk, but although the first trailer was extremely impressive, there are clearly still a number of unknowns surrounding this project. Sure, the faux documentary style looks completely convincing and the social allegory is thoughtful, but what is the actual story here? How will it play out? Are we just going to be watching 90 minutes of fake news footage?
Well the full theatrical trailer for District 9 just went online over at Yahoo! today, and it attempts to answer a lot of these questions for us. I don’t want to spoil anything, but let’s just say that the latter half of the trailer should convince anyone that this is a must-see movie that rightfully belongs alongside all the other summer blockbusters. The comparisons to Cloverfield are going to run rampant, but I say, bring ‘em on!
