Good news: we've added a few new District 9 quotes to our site. Check them out now!

Great news: Neil Blomkamp recently dished on a few secrets behind his new film. Here are excerpts from his interview:

On who voices the aliens: It's only one actor who plays every alien, it's Jason Cope. He plays every single alien.

Wikus, Grabbed!

On improvised dialogue between Wikus and the aliens: We would film the two of them and then we would go to a different shack. And he'd pretend to evict a new alien. Then we'd go somewhere else and somewhere else. So it was just the two of them. It's the conversations between those two, the actual dialogue and what actually came out of them was totally improved... That what makes it feel like they are really communicating.

On where the aliens reside: I think that they do have a home planet, it's pretty far away probably in the Andromeda Galaxy, but what I like is that they'll live on the ship for thousands of years. Obviously, there's much more of a population on the main planet, but the ships will go out and get the minerals and the ore and whatever resources they need and then bring them all back home.
