Big District 9 Rumors

by Dan Koelsch

An anonymous source gave us some big rumors about District 9. I want to stress two things. First, the original source is unverified, while our intermediate source is reliable. That being said, this could all be bullshit, so take it with a grain of salt. However, it’s interesting and plausible enough to be worth mentioning. Second, these are pretty juicy spoilers (especially the last one), so if you do not want to know anything about the film, stop reading now.

Now that we got all that out of the way, here are the tidbits we heard:

  • There will be alien suicide bombers
  • The tense climax includes a big MNU air strike on the aliens
  • “The film’s finale reveals that the aliens wanted to invade us along, making a horrible example that humans are the real animals with mistreatment and vile actions/greed.”

Yes, I know that last statement seems a little perplexing, but that’s how it came to me. I think they are trying to say the twist ending sabotages the message of the story, and that certainly seems to be the case. The point is, this movie looks be be dark and gritty. Suicide bombers, air strikes, and oppression do not a comedy make. If these facts are true, I think District 9 could lift itself up from the heaps of alien movies in the same way George A. Romero can lift up a zombie flick: by making it more about the social commentary than the gimmick.


So, are these rumors true? We’ll have to wait until the film is released on August 14th to find out.
