Neill Blomkamp has teamed up with the new short film company Oats Studios to release a series of experimental shorts, the first trailer for which looks as insane and epic as anything you'd expect from the "District 9" and "Elysium" director.

Ditto for the actors involved: that's Sigourney Weaver 0:40.

"The new world altered everyone", the trailer's narrator says, though she could be talking about the film industry.

We don't know exactly when this film will come out, besides "soon", or what its length will be, besides "short". While the famous director is still yet to confirm which streaming platforms he'll be using, a recent tweet suggests that he could stream these movies over Steam. Earlier this month, he showed off a 15 second teaser showing off a soldier shooting down. something. Blomkamp's best known efforts are all set amidst science fiction dystopias in which aliens and robots often play large roles, from Chappie's armour-plated attack androids to District 9's sickly extraterrestrials. If he goes with that binary distribution model, it would make his short film project experimental in more ways that one. From the various clips we can see what appear to be Vietnam-era zombies, lizard-alien overlords and several intense speed-ramped explosions.

Given Blomkamp's pedigree, there's reason to think his Oats shorts could reach similar heights.
