Sigourney Weaver's Character

The Oats Studios banner, headed up by Neill Blomkamp, has released a full trailer for Volume 1, the short sci-fi film (or films) with the end goal to potentially spawn feature film (or films) – much like how Blomkamp’s District 9 grew out of his short film Alive in Joburg.

The footage all looks to be of lo-fi ’80s vibe, which is sure to please anyone who felt let down by the recent Alien reboot.
