Watch the trailer for District 9
When an alien species lands on earth for the first time, governments and world leaders are all expecting a huge advance in technology to be gained. Nothing happens, the aliens are just adamant they wish to go back to their home planet. Kept in a sort of refugee centre in South Africa called District 9 for more than 20 years no one on earth really knows what to do with them. The aliens won't teach humans how their advanced weapons and technology work and the people who work for Multi National United (MNU) - a private company charged with looking after the aliens and unleashing their knowledge - find themselves in a downward spiral.
When one of their workers is affected by an alien virus, he becomes the MNU's most powerful weapon to unleash the alien's secrets. With nowhere to hide, MNU field operative Wikus van der Merwe finds himself friendless and fighting for his freedom.
