Incredible First Trailer for ELYSIUM!

Finally! The first trailer has been released for Neill Blomkamp's new sci-fi movie Elysium, and it look like it's going to be an incredibly badass film! I love the tone of the film; the story seems rock solid, and the visual effects look amazing! I loved what I saw in this first trailer, and I think this movie is going to end up being something mind-blowing. 

Elysium actor William Fichtner had these encouraging words to say to AICN in a recent interview,

You know how there are no new things? There’s no new war movie, there’s war movies. Over time stuff like The Deer Hunter and Platoon ups it. All of a sudden somebody presents it to you in a way you’ve never seen before. It’s a new bar, a new mark of definitively telling you what something is. In the clips I saw from Elysium I felt like it did that. It really felt like I never saw that movie. It redefined something.

So there's a good possibility that this movie could redefine something, which seems pretty damn incredible. We don't get a lot of movies like that these days, so hearing that is very exciting! Here's the synopsis:

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 sci-fi film is set to be released on August 9th! Check out the trailer, and let us know if you like what you see!
