District 9: Spaceships over Soweto
I, like any normal, rational person, thought that this was a hoax. But it’s not. This is an upcoming movie about aliens landing in Johannesburg by local director Neill Blomkamp and Peter Jackson.

It also shows that anything is possible if you put your mind to it — yes, even make a Hollywood movie about aliens landing in Soweto.
