From Peter Jackson's studio, this is a sci-fi action adventure with a
difference. When aliens land on Earth they are rounded up and sent to a Johannesburg containment camp called District 9. 28 years later, Wikus (Sharlto Copley), an agent for a company which oversees the camp, is put in charge of a forced eviction of District 9’s abused citizens. But when he himself begins to turn into an alien after coming into contact with a toxic liquid, he must go on the run to evade his bosses. District 9 creates a bitingly satiric world where humans – not aliens – are the true monsters, treating our our docile visitors with bigotry and hatred. It's spectacular, thoughtful and darkly funny.
