District 9 came out in top spot on its opening day grossing an estimated $14.2 million dollars. That's a very impressive showing for the low-budget sci-fi actioner considering that the film's budget is nestled around just $30 million dollars. The opening also set a record for a Sony Pictures R-rated August release. It's also the second-best R-rated opening for any studio release (behind American Pie 2's $16.5 million opening day.)

"And he's certainly returned the favor," Copley says.

Last week's debut of the trailer for District 9 didn't reveal all. If you watched it then you know that the faces of the aliens were fuzzed out and that the interrogation scene at the end of the trailer didn't translate the alien's speech into our language. Well, now that problem has been rectified by the viral marketing website MNU Spreads Lies. Their webmaster has posted the District 9 trailer with the subtitles and clear view of the alien's face.
