Blomkamp, the guy behind movies like District 9, Chappie and Elysium, will be releasing a series of short films, via his company Oats Studios.
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.More news: Kourtney Kardashian Cuddles Up to Son Reign in Skimpy Bikini
