Mysterious Neill Blomkamp Project Oats Studio Has Its First Trailer

The trailer also harks back to the short films Blomkamp made prior to the critical success of District 9.

The teaser gives us shots of an overgrown Eiffel Tower; some seriously creepy, lizard-like aliens; what looked like some Vietnam-era zombie soldiers; and in general, a pretty freaky and grim future for humanity at large - done in the style of the short films that Blomkamp made his name with before landing District 9.

Fans know Neill Blomkamp as the mind behind fan favorite film District 9 and the loosely tied Matt Damon movie Elysium, but he has been teasing a mysterious project for a while now.

With this project, it seems like Blomkamp is trying to utilize Steam as a go-to place for experimental art and as an outlet for his own wacky and freaky alien invasion ideas without the limits of studio expectations.

If you're eagle-eyed, you'll catch a quick flash of Sigourney Weaver in the trailer.

While the trope is a familiar one, Blomkamp's new film feels a lot like the possible fallout from Independence Day if it were the aliens-not the humans-who won the day. Known as Oats Studios "Volume 1," these films aren't coming to the art-house cinema or even YouTube. "Adapt or die, it was as simple as that", adds the voiceover. The plan appears to be to sell several of these short films online through Steam.
