This short film by Neill Blomkamp dates back to 2005, and looks pretty sharp despite four years of improved CGI since then and the budget constraints on a smaller project. News has just hit the intarwebz that it’s now being made into a feature-length film. It will be interesting to see what can be done with this premise with a big sloppy Hollywood budget. My gut feeling is that a short film was the right format unless there’s more to it than the very obvious ‘Alien Nation with bigger guns’ direction I suspect that Paramount or Warner Brothers will push this towards.
