Exclusive District 9 concept art

Thanks to our sister publication ImagineFX we've got some never-before-seen art work from the summer's sci-fi sleeper sensation District 9 , produced by Peter Jackson and directed by Neill Blomkamp.

He's an alien. He's an illegal alien, he's a 'prawn' in Johannesburg.

Looks like a Transformer. Isn't. This is the battlesuit Agent Wikus (Sharlto Copley - soon to be seen as 'Howling Mad' Murdoch in the A-Team movie re-boot) wears to give him extra fire power.

Enforced Alien tattooing. Evokes real world issues in this loose apartheid allegory.
