Splice was your polished up, Species-esque lesson of what happens when you play God, but District 9 director Neill Blomkamp wants to take the cinema verite approach with his next. A /Film reader tipped them off to the latest online issue of Wired Magazine where a disturbing viral teaser for Blomkamp’s next was hiding. “The video, which you can watch for yourself embedded after the jump, features two young men who discover a dead alien-looking creature in a puddle on the side of a dirt road,” writes the site. “The creature has a circular stamp on its side which reads “18.12 AGM Heartland Pat Pend USA” and the outer circle reads: “US Inspected And Approved”.” You can watch the video below the break and find a bit more info that/Film dug up./Film writes: “18.12 is the number of the issue of WiReD that this video appears in. I did some searching and found out that a Beverly Hills-based company named Sable Productions Ltd. filed for the trademark “AGM Heartland” on October 18th 2010. The trademark use is labeled as:
Entertainment services by way of an online website with video, audio and textual content and images featuring characters and storylines about a fictional genetic engineering company that produces genetically engineered and altered organisms.”
This is such a wonderful reflection of one of the major questions many of us ask of our government: What’s really going on behind closed doors? And even worse, what are they capable of?
What do you guys think of the video?
