Here's a cool new photo from Neill Blomkamp's highly anticipated sci-fi film Elysium featuring Matt Damon all decked out in his futuristic military gear. We got to see some footage from the film at this year's Comic-Con, and it looked so freakin' awesome! You can read our panel coverage for that here, which includes all kinds of details. This is Blomkamp's follow-up film to District 9, and it looks like it could be even better.
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.
The movie will be released in theaters on August 9th, 2013. I have a feeling this movie is just going to blow audiences away. I wonder when they'll end up getting out the first trailer for the movie.
