Neill Blomkamp's live action Anthem short film is very short indeed

Conviction, the live action Anthem short film from District 9 director Neil Blomkamp, is now available to watch online.

It won't take you long to watch:

Maybe there's a part two?

There's not long now until the launch of Anthem the game - which does have a proper story. It arrives next week on 22nd February, or you can start playing tomorrow, 15th February, if you're an Origin/EA Access subscriber.
