New Images From Neill Blomkamp's ELYSIUM
It's really rare to see something new from director Neill Blomkamp's upcoming sci-fi film Elysium, but today we've got a couple new photos to share with you! The shots feature Matt Damon whose bionic parts are being tinkered with and Alice Braga in what seems to be a pretty serious situation.
I hopefully we'll see a trailer for this soon! I saw some footage of at Comic-Con last year, and it was pretty mind-blowing stuff. The effects weren't finished at the time, but it still looked freakin' great!
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 also stars Jodie Foster, Sharlto Copley, Wagner Moura, Diego Luna, and William Fichtner. Elysium is set to hit theatres on August 9th, 2013.
