The sci-fi film District 9 will come out on 4K Ultra HD Oct. 13 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.
From producer Peter Jackson (The Lord of the Rings Trilogy) and director Neill Blomkamp, the film was nominated for four Oscars, including Best Picture.
District 9 plunges viewers into a world where aliens have landed — only to be exiled to a slum on the fringes of Johannesburg. One lone human discovers the mysterious secret of the extraterrestrial weapon technology. Hunted and hounded through the bizarre back alleys of an alien shantytown, he discovers what it means to be the ultimate outsider on your own planet.
Bonus materials on 4K include the original theatrical trailers and a “Comic-Con Extravaganza” featurette.
Archival special features on Blu-ray include deleted scenes; director’s commentary; “The Alien Agenda: A Filmmaker’s Log,” a three-part documentary; “Metamorphosis: The Transformation of Wikus”; “Innovation: Acting and Improvisation”; “Conception and Design: Creating the World of District 9”; “Alien Generation: Visual Effects”; and “Joburg from Above,” an interactive map of satellite and schematics of the world of District 9.
