District 9 Trailer

Part documentary, part action, part sci-fi, District 9 seems to be a lot of things. Whether they will add up to an epic masterpiece is still unknown. The basic premise of the film is this: aliens are here on earth and they are being kept away from humans in an area called District 9. The studio has put together a whole viral campaign (it's been active for weeks) to promote the film, with "warnings" to the public to be alert — and that if you should see an alien, report it. Produced by Peter Jackson and directed by a guy named Neill Blomkamp, the movie is slated to hit theaters on August 14th. For now, here's the latest trailer. If you haven't had a chance to check it out, do so now -- it's pretty fascinating!
