Neill Blomkamp’s directorial debut was the much successful sci-fi thriller District 9 and ever since the films release many fans have been anticipating Blomkamp’s next effort. Elysium will mark the young directors second film and ever since its announcement not much has been said about the film other than it was going to be in the sci-fi genre with a lot of underlying sociopolitical messages.
Finally, we get an official hi-res look at the film which features a badass looking Matt Damon with one hell of a gun. Elysium will also star Sharlto Copley, Jodie Foster, Wagner Moura, William Fichtner, Alice Braga and Diego Luna.
In the year 2159 two classes of people exist: the very wealthy who live on a pristine man-made space station called Elysium, and the rest, who live on an overpopulated, ruined Earth. Secretary Rhodes (Jodie Foster), a hard line government ofﬁcial, will stop at nothing to enforce anti-immigration laws and preserve the luxurious lifestyle of the citizens of Elysium. That doesn’t stop the people of Earth from trying to get in, by any means they can. When unlucky Max (Matt Damon) is backed into a corner, he agrees to take on a daunting mission that if successful will not only save his life, but could bring equality to these polarized worlds.
Check it out.
