See District 9 at Comic-Con!
IGN is giving away tickets to Peter Jackson’s new sci-fi film.
District 9, from producer Peter Jackson and director Neill Blomkamp, looks to be one of the coolest movies coming this summer. The tale of mysterious aliens who have landed on Earth and are forced to live in an internment camp has been piquing audiences’ curiosity ever since we first started seeing signs of the viral campaign for the film at last year’s San Diego Comic-Con.
Now, at Comic-Con 2009, some fortunate IGN readers are going to get the chance to see the film weeks before its release.
We’re giving away 14 pairs of tickets to a special District 9 screening via IGN’s Twitter following — one ticket for the IGN reader and one for his/her guest per pair. Both attendees must be 17 years old or over and will need to show a valid ID at the theater, so don’t bother trying to get tickets if you can’t meet those criteria!
A couple of other things to keep in mind: The ticketholders must be in San Diego already at the time of the screening as IGN is not responsible for anyone’s travel to the event. However, they do not need to be attending Comic-Con in order to see the film as the screening will take place at a theater outside of the convention center.
Speaking of which, the screening itself is happening at the United Artists Horton Plaza 14 at 475 Horton Plaza, San Diego, CA at 7pm PST on July 23. You must check-in at the theater no later than 6:30pm PST.
The giveaway will be happening at random times between now and Sunday, so keep following IGN’s Twitter at http://twitter.com/igncom for your chance to see District 9 early!
Oh, and no aliens allowed…
