    I was wondering if Blomkamp was going to make another movie.

    The scant plot from IMDB: Aliens come to earth to do battle with man kind so they find peace on earth and live like human beings.

    Oh, if you only knew the impact this news had on Brazil yesterday…

    Wagner is a great actor, hope his part as the villain will be able to show his talent to the rest of the world.

    I hope he can find some consistency in the plot. District 9 started out great, and then became a standard cliche seen in so many other movies. So overrated.

      You’re overrated, Erin.
      Wait…Am I now one of those losers on EW who just go on to write dumb replies to comments?
      Oh sweet jebus watermelons, I am.

    Erin, this is Neill. You really hurt my feelings with that statement about district 9 being cliched. Thanks for ruining my day.

      Erin is being far too kind. District 9 was video game trash, posing as “social commentary” – same as Elysium. That people thought of it as Oscar worthy is proof that the film “Idiocracy” is the REAL future of 2154…

    I’m just glad someone in LA is planning on the world not ending in 2012
