Even More District 9 Concept Art Revealed!

by Dan Koelsch

On Wednesday, we brought you some cool concept art from District 9 that will be on the DVD. Now, we have even more from the Weta Workshop themselves. Weta, a special effects company founded by the film’s producer Peter Jackson, designed the aliens and machinery that when into District 9. You may remember we interviewed Greg Broadmore from Weta last month on the weapons he designed for the film. Now the company has posted several images of their concept art for the aliens, weapons, machines, and even the little “pet lobster” fighting aliens as the drawings call them. Check out the page for yourself, there’s definitely some cool things. Here is what Iain, who wrote the original article, had to say about it:

Since Wednesday even more concept art has been revealed. Thanks to Deadpool from the forums for the heads-up. Most interesting among them is some examples of signs for the movie/marketing campaign, examples of the alien language, a “ferro fluid dongle” and the most interesting of all, a “open mouth” predator style headshot. We didn’t see this open mouth action in D9, so you have to wonder, was it because of the predator comparisons that would be raised, or is it because they were keeping the good stuff for the next movie? The foreign posters certainly showed an army of Exo-suits, so you never know! It could be Prawn warfare!



Some of those unused alien designs were kind of silly, so I’m glad they ended up where they did. Here are a few examples of the pictures from the site. Let us know what you think!
