An Anthem Short Movie Directed by Neill Blomkamp Arrives This Week

By Sam Quirke, 3 days ago
If you're hyped for BioWare's upcoming Iron Man-with-guns simulator Anthem, this might be a great Valentine's Day present for you. District 9 director Neill Blomkamp has directed a short movie called "Conviction", set in the Anthem universe and introducing us to some of the game's lore. There's currently only a teaser for the movie, but the rest is arriving on Thursday.


If you recognise the director's name, it may well be because he was originally pencilled in to direct the long-abandoned Halo movie. After production was abandoned, Blomkamp recycled some of the production work into the critically acclaimed District 9. He went on to direct Elysium and Chappie, and is currently linked to a RoboCop reboot.

Anthem is out on February 22nd.

We've got the full list of Anthem achievements - check the list for guides to unlocking them.
