It's Humans Versus Aliens in Neill Blomkamp's New Sci-Fi Project

With his proposed Alien sequel no longer on the cards, Neill Blomkamp has been keeping himself busy with a new experimental filmmaking venture.

But before all that, in 2007, Blomkamp steered an official, seven-minute short set in the universe of blockbuster action game Halo, as human soldiers and monstrous brutes tussled over a piece of high-value equipment.

NASA To Announce Historic Trip To The Sun
The active outer atmosphere, the corona , which the spacecraft will fly through, is the region where the solar wind is generated. The goal: improve space weather predictions by learning more about the sun's corona-the "crown" of plasma that surrounds stars.

Blomkamp, the director behind District 9 and Elysium, has been teasing his experimental project on social media for a while now. "Adapt or die, it was as simple as that". Future volumes might then be monetized, and feature film adaptations of one of the shorts could be in the cards as well. Known as Oats Studios "Volume 1," these films aren't coming to the art-house cinema or even YouTube.

Blomkamp famously got his start by directing short films, including Tetra Vaal, Alive in Joburg, Yellow and Tempbot. While details about plot and cast are still kept under wraps, viewers notice two actresses in the teaser which very look like Dakota Fanning and Sigourney Weaver.

Gardega said. " Fearless Girl " was placed opposite the bull in March for International Women's Day on a temporary permit. The statue's actual creator, Kristen Visbal , did not respond to requests from the Post for comment on " Pissing Pug ".

According to comments made by Blomkamp on his Twitter account, the director has been toying with the idea of distributing the shorts via Steam, though has since stated that Volume 1 "could be entirely free", with YouTube used as a platform. As noted by io9, Blomkamp has previously expressed a desire to use Valve's Steam as a distribution for short films, but neither the teaser video nor the web page confirm that. Other footage in the trailer appears to come from separate short films, one of which depicts USA army forces fighting in the jungle. Alongside the question, the director posted never before seen photos from a mystery project that turned out to be Oats Studio.
