The First Teaser for District 9

ON

ComingSoon.net got an early preview of Neill Blomkamp’s upcoming sci-fi thriller District 9 at ShoWest last month–you can read our write-up here–and now Sony has released the first teaser trailer for the film produced by Peter Jackson, which takes place in a South African refugee camp for extraterrestrials.

The teaser is essentially the first part of the footage shown at ShoWest, basically just setting up the premise of the camp without getting into the central plot of a human infected with a virus that turns him into an alien.

You can watch it in regular and High Definition QuickTime formats at Apple.com.

District 9 opens on August 9.
