Upon my last visit to the movie theater I came in contact with a trailer for the film District 9, initially I was intrigued, a documentay style film on the quartering and segregation of intergalactic aliens is just appealing. The first trailer is obviously designed to be a teaser and really leaves you with nothing more than a premise and a hankering for the next trailer. Well recently they released the second trailer that gives a little more insight into the film and actually gives you a little more information on the film so that you can decide if it’s going to be worth watching. I’m a little dissappointed in the second trailer because I guess I was just hoping for more after seeing the first, I still think this film will be worth watching but doubt that it will truly be a film that people are talking about, either good or bad.
Decent effects, good premise, and some slightly funny material could make for a B+ film. As far as I know, the guy who gets sprayed with the liquid begins to have his DNA altered to that of the alien species and the alien weaponry in which the people of earth are interested is only able to be activated by the aliens, thus chase ensues on the man whose DNA is becoming more and more alien.
The film comes out August 14th and I’ll probably be in attendance, unless of course the next trailer really blows.
