The film was inspired by director Neill Blomkamp's childhood in South Africa during apartheid.
Wikus Van De Merwe:
This is Christmas. This is Christmas, my friends! This is the biggest find that I've ever seen.
When Wikus looks at his chest, he observes the black boils which were forming. However, in a later scene, when he is caught temporarily by the soldiers, he has a clean chest (except for the blood from other bodies on him)
The end credits are back to front, with the actors names on the left and character names on the right. As opposed to most films where its the other way round.
