In this weeks Shortlist(a free magazine available every Thursday) the world of District 9 came crashing through into the real world…

Containing features and advice on Aliens(dubbed ‘Prawns’), a double page spread offered advice on what to do when you encounter them and even some job ads for the MNU. This is only a small part of what has been a very cool viral campaign which even included advertising on phone boxes deeming them ‘for Human use only’

Important info
All looks important, glad I got a copy in case I meet a Prawn sometime!

Now hiring... do you have what it takes?

There are 4 more pages which settle back into reality to interview the makers of the film. I’m going to try and scan these pages in if I can find my scanner, and unlike my Watchmen Metro cover i’ve moved it somewhere safe so it doesn’t get thrown out!

The hype around this film is getting unbearable I can’t wait to see it, with this and Moon it’s been a great summer for Sci-Fi!
