Must See: Trailer #2 for Neill Blomkamp's Oats Studios

Holy shit is that Sigourney Weaver?

Wow. I was a little on the fence about DISTRICT 9 director Neill Blomkamp's upcoming Oats Studios, but now after peeping this second trailer, I'm all in.

Featuring amazing special effects and, yes, Sigourney Weaver (among others) this new trailer is bound to become that holy grail which all internet videos aspire to be: viral. Basically, don't be surprised if even your friend who isn't usually into "all that horror/space stuff" is singing this trailer's praises within the next few days. It's that cool.

I especially love the living skeleton which is one of the coolest horror images since, well, the living skeleton from RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD.

All hyperbole aside, check out the new trailer below and see for yourself. Then make sure to let us know what you think of Blomkamp's Oats Studios on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram!

OATS STUDIOS rundown via our own Cody Hamman:

The director has revealed that he has started up a company called Oats Studios so he can work on his own projects with no constraints, all while keeping an open dialogue with the audience. The plan is to release a series of online experimental shorts under the Oats Studios banner, making many of them free to view on YouTube. Blomkamp is also considering offering bonus materials through Steam for a nominal fee. If viewers want to dig into 3D models, VFX assets, concept art, raw footage, the music, etc., they would head over to Steam and pay for it.

The idea is that if people enjoy seeing the first volume of shorts for free, they might pay for the second volume or go to the theatre to see a feature adaptation of one of the shorts. Blomkamp has said that getting features out of some of these shorts is "absolutely the goal".

Sounds good to me! Again after viewing this new trailer I'll for sure make it a point to check out the "experimental shorts" once they start hitting the interwebs. Until then we will keep our eyes out (get it?) for any further info on Oats Studios and let you know as soon as there is a release plan.

You can check out the Oats Studios first trailer right HERE.

Dakota Fanning is in at least one of the shorts.
