Here is an extensive image gallery of District 9 which is in many ways a horror film more than the billed science fiction tale. Also here is the studios brief lowdown.

District 9 – Official Information

Thirty years ago, aliens made first contact with Earth.

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.

Directed by Neill Blomkamp with a cast that includes Sharlto Copley, Jason Cope and Nathalie Boltt.
