District 9 viral sites

When the live-action HALO movie got stuffed back into Master Chief's locker, that project's intended director Neill Blomkamp moved on to a secretive movie called DISTRICT 9. The sci-fi project was announced with Peter Jackson producing and WETA providing FX, and commercial director/3D animator Blomkamp making his feature debut, but no further details were offered.

But now we can postulate thanks to the increasingly popular viral campaign game. Judging from the sites that have popped up, the film seems like some combination of ALIEN NATION and Blomkamp's own short film ALIVE IN JOBURG, with humans and extraterrestrials living together not quite harmoniously, and a large corporation as the apparent source of the strife.

The movie isn't due until August 2009, so we have a long time for conjecture. Check out the sites below and start working on the puzzle. Maybe it'll actually have more to do with the eventual movie than all that CLOVERFIELD viral stuff.

Extra Tidbit: It would seem that MNU SPREADS LIES and MATHS FROM OUTER SPACE are also DISTRICT 9 viral tie-ins. Keep digging!

Listening to all the monotone women voice dialogue made me feel line I was waiting in a line at Disney or something, lol.

This seems pretty cool, great concept. But for some reason I hate how it was compared to Alien Nation, seems boring to me. Seems almost like a epic, mature Men In Black.

Oh wait...produced by Petter Jackson? SIGN ME UP!

kinda cool, but

I liked Joburg, and Blomkamp seems for real. But these games just aren't worth the effort, why don't we all just not play along? The film has a cool enough concept already.
