Today, I went to check out The Taking Of Pelham 123 (I’ll have a review up soon), to my dismay, I got to my showing 30 seconds late. But, I didnt miss any part of the movie, I missed a ‘NCM First Look’ for District 9. I only saw a couple shots, one of a non-human getting shot, and a non-human leaping away from MNU Agents trying to evict him. Nothing was blurred. Needless to say I was angered. What could I have possibly missed? Apparently, just some MNU babble that I already know.
Check out the IMDB description of the footage.
It showed the director narrating behind the scenes footage, as well as explained that the aliens were being evicted from District 9. It showed the aliens getting beat down, and one being shot. There was also a scene where they went to evict one alien, and he slapped something out of the MNU guy’s hand and leaped past him.
The director gave some details about MNU, and the short made it clear that there were some secrets in district 9. He also mentioned that it was about weapons. Another thing they showed is that they were chasing the lead character “get the freak”.
They are showing these “First-Looks” at Regal Cinemas/AMC/Cinemark theaters. I highly suggest you go see Pelham 123 to check this footage out. Once you do, leave a comment to let us know what you thought!
District 9 Opens across America August 14th.
