Not sure if anyone here is familiar with Neil Blomkamp, but he is an up and coming South African director who is set to release his first major feature film in a couple of weeks called District 9, a sci-fi film based on his short film Alive in Joburg. It looks really awesome (in an almost Children of Men sense), and from what I've seen of his shorts, I find his directing style really refreshing. This looks like it could be THE sci-fi film of the year, let's hope it delivers.
