I'm rather excited about this, although I have mixed feelings about Peter Jackson films. Seems to me like he either hits the concept dead on and makes a great movie (like the LotR movies) or he strays far from the central theme of the story and makes a forgettable one (the remake of King Kong)- BUT that's just my opinion
District 9 will be the first movie I will have seen in theaters for quite some time.
Plus that robot exo-skeleton in the trailer does look SO bad-a**!!!
