    It's being shot like a documentary. This is by the guy who directed those Halo shorts for Xbox Live (and was supposed to direct the Halo movie). I think it looks really freakin cool.

    That looks pretty awesome. I could have sworn I saw something about this while back but it might have been his spec movie or something because it looks familiar, but this trailer looks to have taken it up a notch in the production.

    I really like science fiction shot documentary style.

    That trailer was removed, so here’s the link to the official trailer site.

    I knew absolutely nothing of this before seeing the trailer in front of Wolverine today. I'm not even sure how that's possible these days, but it sure made for a WTF?! initial reaction. Looks friggin' awesome.

    It's the type of trailer that leaves you hearing crickets in the theater after it plays. I'd love to get a sense for what people are actually thinking about it.

    Yeah me and my roomie also went to see Wolverine today and saw this trailer in front. Both of us are kinda curious about it.

    And this happened as well. I think for the most part people were trying to understand what they just saw.

    Whoa! another movie added to the 'gotta see list' this year. Just heard about this last night (still haven't seen Wolverine so missed that trailer showing).
    Looks pretty dang interesting though.

    D-9 Movie

    I saw a movie poster ad at a bus stop today that had D-9 on it. There was a picture of an alien and something about calling a certain number (forgot what it was) to report any non-humans. I checked out the movie site and it seems to be a new Peter Jackson movie coming out in the summer. The trailer looks interesting. Can't wait to see more clips of the movie.

    It's produced by Peter Jackson, not directed.
