Let me just start this by saying, it’s about damn time! District 9 director Neill Blomkamp’s upcoming sci-fi epic Elysium has finally released it’s first trailer and I’d have to say that it was certainly worth the wait. For how quiet the film has been kept the first trailer doesn’t shy away from showing us everything we want to see. The world Blomkamp seemed to have created looks phenomenal and Matt Damon couldn’t look more badass.
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.
I love that they’ve been able to keep this film so under wraps for so long because it makes the trailer that much more special. The flick looks bad-ass and stars Matt Damon, Sharlto Copley, Wagner Moura, William Fichtner, Alice Braga and Diego Luna.
Anyway, forget all the words and stuff, check it out!
