Klum.0-6bf4c2bdb9123ab96fe3933afd4a50df3ab85f0c

Blomkamp's Elysium was generally well-received-though not in comparison to District 9-but his most recent film, Chappie, was a disaster.

The upcoming short films will be featured on the studio's YouTube channel and the Steam streaming service as well. Blomkamp is spearheading a venture titled Oats Studios, which will be crafting experimental short films to be made available via Steam.

Trump breaks campaign promise by not moving US Embassy to Jerusalem
Despite that, most experts are skeptical of Trump's chances for achieving a peace deal that eluded other United States presidents. The long-standing US position is that Jerusalem's fate must be worked out through Israeli-Palestinian negotiations.

Via io9, the teaser for Oat 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.

We'll bring you more on Volume 1 and Blomkamp's other filmmaking plans as we get it. The voiceover in the trailer hauntingly explains, "We were once mankind, we were humanity, they came here to exterminate us ... a new world altered everyone".

I feel like this: If my 76ers had the chance, I'd like to see them do a 50's Celtics and just be in the finals year after year. They may be defending champions and they may have LeBron James , but against Golden State, they are definite underdogs.

Check out the teaser trailer, which shows Dakota Fanning greeting the aliens with extreme prejudice and Sigourney Weaver giving combat orders. "Adapt or die. Simple as that", the narrator ends. Most importantly, check out this very cool teaser trailer and let us know what you think! Blomkamp has indicated that a lot of his coming work will be offered for free through the Oats YouTube channel, but he is also interested in utilizing digital retail platform Steam. Blomkamp later posted some mysterious images to Twitter, showing off one of the aliens seen in the trailer, as well as a Vietnam-era soldier. These short films would be heavily monster focused, and the studio would serve as a testing ground for potential full-scale films.
