Around the time the narrative thrust of District 9 loses a bit of steam and you begin to put the pieces in place for how things might end, something else takes over. There is a great discussion to be had about the morality of the characters and the story, a discussion that director Neill Blomkamp leaves fairly open. That isn't to say there aren't conclusions or consequences, but more than in most contemporary science fiction movies, the events of District 9 aren't an escape but rather a parable for something we're confronted with everyday, whether we know it or not.
Despite appearances, Blomkamp's film is not just about aliens versus humans. In fact, it's almost never about that dynamic specifically, but rather it's about human nature at its best and worst.
You see, District 9 »

We caught up with the cast and crew of District 9 at Comic-Con 2009 to talk about this amazing new film, produced by Peter Jackson (The Lord of the Rings). Check out our exclusive video interviews below with star Sharlto Copley, director Neill Blomkamp and producer Peter Jackson.
District 9 blasts into theaters August 14th and stars Sharlto Copley, Jason Cope, Nathalie Boltt, Sylvaine Strike, Elizabeth Mkandawie, John Summer, William Allen Young, Greg Melvill-Smith, Nick Blake, Morena Busa Sesatsa, Themba Nkosi, Mzwandile Nqoba, Barry Strydom, Jed Brophy, Louis Minnaar and Vanessa Haywood.
The only thing we’ve seen of the Peter Jackson-produced “District 9″ so far has been trying to sell us the viral side of the movie. It’s all very clever and cute, but it’s about time we saw some real plot from this movie, and this latest trailer does just that. I just hope that when all is said and done, this isn’t another movie about Government conspiracies and cover-ups, with the aliens ended up being exploited by the big bad humans and are just fighting back, etc. Man, that would be so predictable… An extraterrestrial race forced to live in slum-like conditions on Earth suddenly find a kindred spirit in a government agent that is exposed to their biotechnology. Starring Sharlto Copley, David James, Jason Cope, Mandla Gaduka, Vanessa Haywood, Kenneth Nkosi, Louis Minnaar, William Allen Young, and Hlengiwe Madlala. Directed by Neill Blomkamp. Stay »
Three new images from Neill Blomkamp’s South African sci-fi drama “District 9″, which is quite the intriguing movie. As to the execution, well, that remains to be seen. But from everything I’ve seen of it, it sure looks like it has the potential to be good, or at the very least, something very different in sci-fi fiction. Being that it’s been a while since we’ve gotten something different, I think we should definitely give the film a shot. An extraterrestrial race forced to live in slum-like conditions on Earth suddenly find a kindred spirit in a government agent that is exposed to their biotechnology. Starring Sharlto Copley, David James, Jason Cope, Mandla Gaduka, Vanessa Haywood, Kenneth Nkosi, Louis Minnaar, William Allen Young, and Hlengiwe Madlala. Directed by Neill Blomkamp. The aliens walk among us August 14. »
