Niell Blomkamp's dystopian epic Elysium gets a set of new stills

It’s a rare thing to get a peak at Neill Blomkamp’s upcoming sci-fi thriller Elysium as the entire project has been tightly under wraps from the get-go. Today, however, a couple of new stills have made their way online showing leading man Matt Damon getting some work done on his skull — looks like fun! In the other pic we get a look at Alice Braga’s character.

I’m a sucker for a good sci-fi film and Blomkamp’s latest effort in the genre looks and sounds like it’s going to be one hell of a ride. Damon looks like a beast and the fact that this film has been able to be so secretive during the filming stages just makes this even more exciting because that is no easy thing to do these days.

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 Delacourt (Jodie Foster) will stop at nothing to preserve the luxurious lifestyle of the citizens of Elysium – but that doesn’t stop the people of Earth from trying to get in by any means they can. Max (Matt Damon) agrees to take on a life-threatening mission, one that could bring equality to these polarized worlds.

Sharlto Copley, Wagner Moura, William Fichtner, Alice Braga and Diego Luna also star in the Neill Blomkamp directed sci-fi epic which is set to hit theaters August 9th. Check out the new pics below!
