Peter Jackson (Lord of the Rings) produced the film which Blomkamp (Elysium, Chappie) co-wrote with Terri Tatchell (Chappie).
Thirty years ago, aliens arrive on Earth — not to conquer or give aid, but — to find refuge from their dying planet. Separated from humans in a South African area called District 9, the aliens are managed by Multi-National United, which is unconcerned with the aliens’ welfare but will do anything to master their advanced technology. When a company field agent (Sharlto Copley) contracts a mysterious virus that begins to alter his DNA, there is only one place he can hide: District 9.
Rated R for bloody violence and pervasive language, it sports a 90% on Rotten Tomatoes with a Critics Consensus that reads: Technically brilliant and emotionally wrenching, District 9 has action, imagination, and all the elements of a thoroughly entertaining science-fiction classic.
