Neill Blomkamp’s New Trailer Teases Series of Sci-fi Films

Neill Blomkamp’s New Trailer Teases Series of Sci-fi Films

Neill Blomkamp‘s proposed Alien 5 is probably never going to happen, but that doesn’t mean that Blomkamp is finished with sci-fi. Far from it, in fact. For a few months, Blomkamp has teased his next project without revealing any specifics about what it would be. That changed today, when Blomkamp dropped a teaser trailer for Oats Studios Volume 1, a new series of short sci-fi films.

Via io9, the teaser for Oats Studios Volume 1 paints a picture of a devastating alien invasion, that’s apparently left Earth at the mercy of lizard-like aliens and Paris overrun by vegetation. The female narrator hints that the invaders came to exterminate humanity, and that the only choice is to adapt or die.

The official site for Oats Studios has also launched, but so far, it simply says “we make experimental short films.” 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. However, it does seem likely that the shorts will share the same world, as the teaser appears to show different people attempting to survive the new order and even soldiers at war.

It’s an intriguing set up, and if we’ve learned anything from Blomkamp’s work on District 9, Elysium, and Chappie, then the Oats Studios films will also feature social commentary mixed with elements of science fiction. We’re also quite curious to see just how “experimental” these shorts will be.
