DISTRICT 9 – Monday May 19th at 8 p.m. on CW50 – SHALTO COPLEY STARS IN THIS ALIEN DRAMA ─ In 1982, a massive star ship bearing a bedraggled alien population, nicknamed “The Prawns,” appeared over Johannesburg, South Africa. Twenty-eight years later, the initial welcome by the human population has faded. The refugee camp where the aliens were located has deteriorated into a militarized ghetto called District 9, where they are confined and exploited in squalor. In 2010, the munitions corporation, Multi-National United, is contracted to forcibly evict the population with operative Wikus van der Merwe (Copley) in charge. In this operation, Wikus is exposed to a strange alien chemical and must rely on the help of his only two new Prawn friends. The movie was directed by Neill Blomkamp.
