District 9 Movie

district 9Another upcoming science-fiction movie this year, called District 9. District 9 movie is directed by Neill Blomkamp and produced by Peter Jackson. The film is starring Jason Cope, Robert Hobbs and Sharlto Copley. The story of District 9 is set in a world in which aliens have landed on earth 28 years ago. Those aliens are like refugees, contained in a huge camp called District 9. Humans waited for the hostile attack, or the giant advances in technology. Neither came. Instead, the aliens were refugees, the last survivors of their home world. The creatures were set up in a makeshift home in South Africa’s District 9 as the world’s nations argued over what to do with them. Now, patience over the alien situation has run out. Control over the aliens has been contracted out to Multi-National United (MNU), a private company uninterested in the aliens’ welfare – they will receive tremendous profits if they can make the aliens’ awesome weaponry work. So far, they have failed; activation of the weaponry requires alien DNA. The tension between the aliens and the humans comes to a head when an MNU field operative, Wikus van der Merwe (Sharlto Copley), contracts a mysterious virus that begins changing his DNA. Wikus quickly becomes the most hunted man in the world, as well as the most valuable – he is the key to unlocking the secrets of alien technology. Ostracized and friendless, there is only one place left for him to hide: District 9. It is scheduled for a release on August 14, 2009.
