Neill Blomkamp is Back and He's Making Sci-Fi Shorts Again

Neill Blomkamp is Back and He's Making Sci-Fi Shorts Again

For Blomkamp, this isn't the first time he's used short films to test the water for new movie ideas.

Before writer/director Neill Blomkamp got famous making original science fiction epics like District 9 and Elysium, he made his name directing a series of short films. "Adapt or die, it was as simple as that". The voiceover in the trailer hauntingly explains, "We were once mankind, we were humanity, they came here to exterminate us ... a new world altered everyone".

European leader blasts Trump on climate withdrawal
Unlike the Paris agreement, the UNFCCC is a Senate-approved treaty , so senators would probably want to have a say in such a move. Franken was one of 10 Democratic senators who traveled to Paris for the final negotiations and to show support for the agreement.

The trailer continues with shots of a woman (played by Dakota Fanning?) shooting an alien in a red-lit corridor, American soldiers facing zombie creatures in Vietnam, and a few more shots of warfare against aliens, complete with exploding tanks and terrifying creatures.

There's no word yet on when Volume One will be released and how soon after that we'd have to wait for any other potential volumes but it seems pretty clear that Blomkamp is banking on getting significant fan support online before shopping his projects in Hollywood. Future volumes might then be monetized, and feature film adaptations of one of the shorts could be in the cards as well.

Lewis Hamilton: "This is why I race"
Spaniard Carlos Sainz came 8th, but placed 7th, ahead of Russian Daniil Kvyat of Toro Rosso and Romain Grosjean of Haas. They brushed going through the first of two turns, with Hamilton going off momentarily as Vettel defended his position.

The Oats Studios shorts will be sold through the gaming streaming site Steam, though the director tweeted that there is scope for Volume 1 to be uploaded free-of-charge to YouTube.

Blomkamp first revealed the project past year after asking fans if they would be interested in purchasing short films off the (majorly) gaming platform Steam. A month and a half later, the first trailer for Blomkamp's ventures has been released and can be seen below. Most importantly, check out this very cool teaser trailer and let us know what you think!
