The first teaser for Neill Blomkamp’s new Oats Studios short, Zygote, has dropped.

While it doesn’t reveal much of what’s going on in Blomkamp’s upcoming experimental short movie, it does give us a tantalizing peek at the freaky creature thingie that will stomp around Zygote. Which makes me think we may go full horror this time.

Slated for a July 12 premiere, Zygote (which will star Dakota Fanning) follows in the footsteps of the Sigourney Weaver-led sci-fi short Rakka and the Vietnam War history based Firebase (with a great deal of sci-fi sprinkled in, of course). Both of Blomkamp’s films clocked in at more than 20 minutes long, so I expect this one to run for about the same length of time.

If Zygote is as exciting as Rakka and Firebase, we’re definitely in for another treat. In the meanwhile, check out the teaser, and let us know what you think. Oh, and don't forget to check out our interview with the District 9 director.
