There have been alot of Sci Fi movies that have been sequels or prequels or based on a different source of material (Games, Comics etc…). But District 9 is based on a original short made by the same director. Here is the short.
This movie was spectacular. The beginning was kinda slow but thats only because they have to build up the character and show you what his life is like and how things change throughout the film. You need this kind of relationship with the main person in order to see it through his eyes.
So far the movie was made with a budget of $30 million, and the box office gross right now is around $40 milion and only on it’s 3rd day. I highly recommend everyone watch this movie as it is my favorite movie of this year by far
