August 14 release date. Mark your calendars boys and girls. This movie is gonna be BADASS!! Finally a film with some balls.
Here is Alive in Joburg, a short film the movie is based on. It's a very clever way to address the problems facing refugees and illegal aliens and the societies that struggle to accommodate them. District 9 will be a full-length film version of this concept and will probably be a tough watch for some. Should be pretty damn good, though.
