Friday, February 12th, 2010 | Posted by Leonard Teo

A contender for the VFX Oscar this year is Neil Blomkamp’s District 9. Other contenders are Avatar and Star Trek.

Film Synopsis: The arrival of an enormous disabled spaceship over Johannesburg, South Africa, has led to the establishment of a refugee camp on the city’s outskirts for the ship’s starving, stranded aliens. Leading an attempt to relocate its inhabitants to a more remote location is security expert Wikus van de Merwe, whose lack of knowledge about the visitors will undergo a dramatic change when he becomes infected with an alien substance.
