district 9

  • Question:-District 9..........?
    I just saw District 9. In the trailer, there is an alien being interrogated and the alien says, "We just want to go home." I don't remember seeing this part in the movie at all. Was it in the movie?

    Answer:-well movie trailers aren't exactly accurate all the time. what i mean by that is that the producers may put things in them that will persuade you into going to see the movie but take them out when they release it.
    i remember a few years back when the Garfield movie came out and the little rats in it said the word "damn" to make it funny in the trailer but when the movie came out they took it out.
  • Question:-district 9...................?
    ok, i think the reason the aliens and people could understand each other in district 9 is they both learned the others languages but did not speak it because it was vocally impossible for them is that right?is there going to be a sequel? did you like it, i thought it was great

    Answer:-Excellent film. Glad it's getting even more recognition on DVD. Yes, there will be a District 10.
  • Question:-What do you think District 9 the movie will be like?
    I saw the trailers for the new movie District 9, and it looks amazing. I only hope it will be a good social commentary instead of a bunch of hype like Cloverfield. What do you guys think?

    Answer:-Well, it's directed by Peter Jackson so you can only expect the best :)

    It's definitely a new twist on alien "invasion" movies so at the moment it's kind of hard to compare it to anything else. I expect it to have somewhat of the same impact that Independence day had on its original audience. Like I said though, considering that this is a completely new type of alien movie, it's gonna be a hit or miss.
  • Question:-How important are alien subtitles in District 9?
    let's say that, hypothetically, a friend of mine got his or her hands on a bootleg copy of District 9 and, hypothetically, this bootleg copy was sans subtitles for the aliens. will that drastically decrease the enjoyment and understanding of the that i can let my friend know?

    Answer:-you need subtitiles to see what the aliens say.
  • Question:-Does District 9 lend itself to a video game or a sequel?
    I loved that movie so much, and I wondered if it made sense for Niel Blomkamp to make either a video game or a sequel. It's got all the kablooey explosions today's gamers need, and a great story, not to mention a cliffhanger that gives some room for District 9+9=18. Any input on wither of these things?

    Answer:-The sequel is slated to come out sometime next year, and you know there has to be a video game somewhere in the works, I mean it's America, it's what they do lol
  • Question:-What if I told you that District 9 is on my top 3 movies list for the year?
    District 9 is so wicked that it's sick. I just saw it tonight at 8:20, and I couldn't wait to get home to tell anybody how great it is. This may be post movie adrenaline, but I am dead serious when I say this has to be one of the best movies of the year, and one of the best sci-fi/action movies in what seems like forever.

    Answer:-Yes! I was completely blown away. It was perfect in every aspect. There was a perfect amount of action, drama, violence, gore, suspense, inspiration and everything.

    The special effects were great. The actors were unknown so it made the move a lot more believable. At points, it feels extremely real. You can feel the pain Wikus was going through when his life turned upside down.

    As soon as the movie finished, it was officially my number one favorite sci-fi thriller ever. And my favorite genre is sci-fi, so it's just about my favorite movie so far. It has everything you could possibly want. It was like star-ship troopers on steroids. Awesome movie.
  • Question:-How long will District 9 be in theaters?
    Is there any way to tell how long a movie will stay in Movie theaters for? District 9 is the movie in question, but it would be nice to be able to tell for future use.

    Answer:-As long as they are making good profit from people coming to see it
  • Question:-What movie should I buy Zombieland or District 9?
    I've seen both and both are good. Zombieland was hilarious but I like Sci-Fi type movies such as District 9 as well. Basically asking someone to decide for me, thanks!

    Answer:-I would buy them both, two great films to have in any collection.
  • Question:-What i heard about district 9 and halo true?
    i was told by someone who's uncle helped do district 9 that it was set as halo before the rings and everything. now this is a long shot i know especially since the aliens look nothing alike but this is still a possibility. i am open to answers but in the off chance that some1 who actually worked on the movie would answer my q that would be awesome.

    Answer:-This is very important if you really want to understand what's going on with the Halo movie. Make sure you read every bit, don't just skim through.

    -Summer of 2002 With the success of Halo: Combat Evolved, Hollywood producers voice interest about making a Halo movie. Concerns over creative control sunk the idea, "thanks but no thanks" said Joseph Staten.

    -2004 before Halo 2 launch A Hollywood player, Peter Schlessel starts to meet with Bungie staff to discuss movie plans. He proposes that instead of leaving it up to Hollywood, "Finance the script yourselves, Hire a writer, have him write something you love, then bring it to Hollywood with a simple message: This is the movie we want to make. Who wants to make it with us?". On the list of Schlessel approved writers is Alex Garland.

    -February 3, 2005 Creative Artists Agency confirmed that Microsoft had completed a million-dollar deal with Alex Garland to write a screenplay based on the video game series Halo, which would then be offered to studios.

    -June 7, 2005 Microsoft released Garland's completed screenplay to various Hollywood studios on June 7, 2005, looking to be paid a $10 million fee as well as the studio's agreement to adhere to guidelines set by the game's developers. Microsoft also wanted the studio to seek approval over the director and cast. In addition, Microsoft sought full merchandising rights for itself, a minimum $75 million budget, and company representatives' full access to the film's rough cuts in Los Angeles. Studios like Paramount, DreamWorks, Sony, and Warner Bros. did not want to cede creative rights to the film and passed over the project.

    -June 2005 20th Century Fox and Universal Studios entered negotiations with Microsoft to divide the distribution rights of Halo. The original $10 million deal was reduced based on the studios' negative response to the exorbitant price tag. In the negotiations, Universal gained rights to release the film in North America, where Fox would distribute the film overseas. On August 22, 2005, Microsoft's deal with the studios was announced to be finalized, with summer 2008 as the target release date.

    -October 4, 2005 Bungie Studios announced that director Peter Jackson was signed onto the project as an executive producer.

    -July 13, 2006 Author D.B. Weiss revealed in an interview that he was writing the screenplay for Halo. At the time of the interview, Weiss said that he was working on his second draft of the new script, which contained elements of the project's original screenplay by Alex Garland.

    -August 2006 Neill Blomkamp is picked by Jackson as the director of the Halo movie.

    -October 20, 2006 Universal and Fox pull out of the deal. A representative of Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh said:
    Universal, on behalf of both studios, asked for a meeting with the filmmakers just prior to the due date of a significant payment. Basically, they said that in order to move forward with the film, the filmmakers had to significantly reduce [the percentage of profits they would receive from the film]. They waited until the last minute to have this conversation. Peter and Fran, after speaking with their producing partners and with Microsoft and Bungie, respectfully declined.

    The source article also stated that work is apparently continuing on the film(which will be directed by Neill Blomkamp) and that Microsoft is already in talks with other distributors.

    -October 31, 2006 Producers Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh, along with Microsoft, are putting the much-anticipated Halo movie into production hell, or where a film has stopped in the production stage. Following recent reports that development of the film would continue in spite of studio backers Fox and Universal dropping out, a press release being distributed by Jackson's WingNut Films today confirms that Halo is being indefinitely postponed. Here's their statement regarding the film, sure to be greeted with howls of discontent by fans:
    "As was previously confirmed, we deeply regret that both Universal and Fox did not choose to move forward with financing the Halo film under the original terms of the agreement. At this time Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh, along with their partner, Microsoft, have mutually agreed to postpone making a feature film based on the Halo video game universe until we can fulfill the promise we made to millions of Halo fans throughout the world that we would settle for no less than bringing a first class film to the big screen. We are fully supportive of Director Neill Blomkamp's vision of the film. Neill is a tremendously gifted filmmaker and his preliminary work on Halo is truly awe-inspiring. While it will undoubtedly take a little longer for Halo to reach the big screen, we are confident that the final feature film will be well worth the wait."

    -May 21, 2007 In an interview with, Peter Jackson stated that he expected the project to continue soon, once the movie studios "catc
