What's in a 9 name

I see two movies are opening this week with similar names.

"District 9" is about extraterrestrials who live in a refugee camp.

"Cloud 9" is about elderly people having sex.

One deals with lumbering, misshapened creatures wandering aimlessly through a world that doesn't want or understand them.

The other one is about extraterrestrials.

Don't forget the upcoming animated film "9" opening on - you got it - 9/9/09. (That's not even a joke. It's true.)

But do not confuse the animated film "9" with the musical "Nine."

I want to see the big budget George Pal remake, "The 9 Faces of Doctor Lao," and the more-economical DeMille remake "The Nine Commandments." Which commandment is being cut? (Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery of course. It's Hollywood.)
