District 9 concept art by Christian Pearce!
This week I've been featuring a lot of concept art from Neill Blomkamp's Elysium, so I thought I'd share some concept art from his last film: District 9. The aliens look different from the final film, but I love the pop culture references.
Pearce is a professional concept illustrator who's worked on major motion pictures movies like King Kong (2005), Avatar (2009) and Man of Steel (2013).
Check out the rest of the pictures after the jump (click to enlarge).

What do you think of the concept art? If you've seen District 9 what did you think?
Official District 9 Summary
From producer Peter Jackson (The Lord of the Rings Trilogy) and director Neill Blomkamp comes a startlingly original science fiction thriller that "soars on the imagination of its creators" (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone). With stunning special effects and gritty realism, the film plunges us into a world where the aliens have landed... only to be exiled to a slum on the fringes of Johannesburg. Now, one lone human discovers the mysterious secret of the extraterrestrial weapon technology. Hunted and hounded through the bizarre back alleys of an alien shantytown, he will discover what it means to be the ultimate outsider on your own planet.
