District 9 Ad Campaign Hits the Streets

It looks like Sony, distributor of the new alien invasion flick District 9, took a page out of HBO’s “True Blood” marketing book and came up with a truly clever ad campaign for the film. Along with placing posters inside comic books stores, they’re decorating bus benches and shelters as well as billboards.

The IMP Awards pointed us in the direction of a flickr account with the goods. Two of them can be found below. Click the link to see the rest.

District 9 centers around an extraterrestrial race that is forced to live in slum-like conditions on Earth. They find a kindred spirit in a government agent that is exposed to their biotechnology. Visit the film’s official site here, and check it out in theatres on August 14th.

    Again sony really markets a film the answering service message is really cool if you dial the number on the signs.

      I didn’t even try calling the number until just now. Genius! Especially when you hit “0” for the operator.
