This year, one movie posed the question: what if we were visited by an alien species, but instead of enslaving us -- or turning us on to exciting new possibilities in technology, philosophy, and interplanetary baby-making -- they simply became refugees, sequestered for decades in a squalid shantytown by a governmental/mega-corporation cabal?
That movie was District 9, and tomorrow, it's available on BLU-RAY™ and DVD. Beyond being the most provocative, unsparing exploration of human/giant-insect relations ever captured on film, the DVD contains deleted scenes, director's commentary, and the conspiratorial director's log "Alien Agenda". Go for the BLU-RAY™ HIGH DEFINITION edition and get everything from a mesmerizing chronicle of Wikus Van De Merwe's metamorphosis (hint: it involves a brand new exoskeleton), to an intricate satellite map of futuristic Johannesburg, to a playable God of War III game demo -- giving you first crack at new weapons, and new-yet-surprisingly-practical uses for decapitated super-being heads.
Because Thrillist readers are constantly helping old ladies across the street, the District 9 team's also rewarding you with an exclusive clip documenting the creation of the visual effects behind the aliens, an enormous challenge fusing an unprecedented vision with cherished galactic visitors of the past. Watch it, then enter to win a copy of the movie -- thereby turning yourself on to exciting new possibilities for sitting on your couch and watching Awesome.
Don't waste your time watching that movie where that guy's gonna marry the wrong girl, but then doesn't. Get a brilliantly imagined vision of the future at the exceptional District9Movie.com, and enter to win a copy on BLU-RAY™ right here.
