I’m not really sure how I feel about the new trailer for District 9, the high concept “alien discrimination” pic. It’s got an interesting set up, making us think we’re all going to be watching a movie about relocated Swine Flu infested Mexicans or something, but instead, nope, it’s aliens.
It’s a cool idea, but the movie kind of lost me with the blurred face alien interrogation scene. I think for something like this to work, the “oppressed people” can’t be CGI, or any sense of empathy goes out the window. It’s kind of funny when the humans say, “Why don’t you just leave?” like they’re your roommate’s cousin who has been freeloading on your coach for the past two months. Yeah aliens, get the **** out of here with your advanced technological and scientific breakthroughs, we don’t want you here!
