As mentioned in last week’s TWIV, the viral for District 9 seems to be back out of nowhere. There are viral web ads on sites like slashfilm.com and even Facebook (thanks to David and Sajin for the tips). Also, the main viral site, D-9.com has a new intro video and walkthrough (via andyboy35 from the forums), and MNU has some downloadable items like wallpapers and stickers. Not to be outdone, mnuspreadslies.com has a new blog just saying they’re back and some downloadable items as well. Lastly, mathsfromouterspace.com has an option to register for updates. As always, it’s a good idea to sign up.
The viral was enough to have /Film devote an article to it, so check that out as well.
