Three New District 9 Images! Good, thought-provoking sci-fi???

I am getting more and more jazzed about this little film. It’s a rare thing nowadays to find sci-fi that is really willing to ask questions about technology and the future as well as our own society.

District 9, about a designated area in which marooned space aliens must eek out an existence, really looks like it will swing for the fences as far as social commentary and true sci-fi.  Here is the synopsis from IMDB…

“An extraterrestrial race forced to live in slum-like conditions on Earth suddenly find a kindred spirit in a government agent that is exposed to their biotechnology.”

Of the three new images posted over at Cinema Blend, the first is my favorite–because it implies a history, a political situation, and a social problem.  It’s realistic, dystopian, and cool as hell.  Check out the pics below…
