What? An original movie idea? Why, that's preposterous!
District 9, from what I can gleam, is about some refugees in South Africa who aren't wanted by anyone. The catch: They are alien refugees, like literally alien refugees. As in from outer-space aliens. It's interesting because they are playing up on how people react when human "alien" refugees move into an area they aren't wanted. I'm sure this may allow some violent things to occur to the aliens because for most people seeing them hurt won't be a big deal, or at least not as heartbreaking as it would to see humans hurt. I don't really get that, either way I assume it will make me sad.
