In 2006, Neill Blomkamp produced a short film called Alive in Joberg that was so impressive that he got a studio deal to expand it into a feature film, which was 2009's District 9. The movies Elysium and Chappie followed, but did not do as well. Maybe Blomkamp is going back to the scheme that worked for him before. He has released a brand new short to the internet, Rakka, starring Sigourney Weaver. Some parts of this video are pretty gory, and it contains NSFW language.
Like his other films, Rakka is set in a post-apocalyptic world. Aliens from outer space take over the earth and make it hell for humans, and they fight back. That's a common setup, but it is done well here, like a combination of the movie Alien and the TV show Falling Skies. Rakka is the first short film from Blomkamp's new film studio Oats. -via reddit
