WATCH: Trailer arrives for Oats Studio, the new sci-fi movie project from Neill Blomkamp

May 30th, 2017 by Marc Comments

Now that sadly, given the luke-warm reception Alien: Covenant got, Neill Blomkamp’s Alien 5 will probably never see the light of day, the director is turning his attention to other areas.

Namely he’s putting his efforts into an experimental filmmaking project called Oats Studio.

The District 9 and Elysium director has given us a trailer for the project which will all be released on Steam later this year.

The trailer shows plenty by showing very little but we can honestly say he has our sci-fi loving attention.

The trailer simply says that Oats: Volume 1 will be streaming soon.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
