Some years back you may recall that a movie version of Halo was in the works at Universal with Neill Blomkamp (District 9) directing, and Peter Jackson producing. Alex Garland (Dredd, 28 Days Later) also wrote the script, but the movie fell apart because it was just going to be too expensive to make.
You probably know by now that Neill Blomkamp, the director of Elysium, made his debut with the acclaimed sci-fi epic District 9. Blomkamp was also up to direct the big screen adaptation of Halo, which was set up at Universal with Peter Jackson directing, but it never got off the ground.
As everybody knows by now, this has been a rough summer at the box office, with movie after movie going in the toilet. Elysium, which is Neill Blomkamp’s big studio follow up to District 9, has been looked at as a possible hope to bring the box office back from the brink. Now the official reviews are in, and what’s the verdict?
This summer has been brutal on big, sci-fi action movies, but Elysium may be the exception. Director Neill Blomkamp, who also made District 9, is probably the most understated blockbuster guy in the movie business.
