First Poster for Neill Blomkamp's ELYSIUM
Here's the first poster for District 9 director Neill Blomkamp's upcoming sci-fi Elysium, which stars Matt Damon and Jodie Foster. The poster gives us a closer look at the crazy bionic parts that have been implanted into Damon's character. I'm excited to see some more footage from this movie!
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.
Elysium also stars Sharlto Copley, Alice Braga, Diego Luna, Wagner Moura, and William Fichtner. It hits theaters on August 9th, 2013.
