New ELYSIUM Photo - Sharlto Copley Confronts Matt Damon

We've got a new photo from Neill Blomkamp’s new sci-fi film Elysium for you to check out. It features the villain (Sharlto Copley) confronting the story's hero (Matt Damon) for an intense showdown. A part of this sequence was screened at Comic-Con last year, and it was pretty insane. Copley is going to be the ultimate badass in 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. The people of Earth are desperate to escape the planet’s crime and poverty, and they critically need the state-of-the-art medical care available on Elysium – but some in Elysium will stop at nothing to enforce anti-immigration laws and preserve their citizens’ luxurious lifestyle. The only man with the chance to bring equality to these worlds is Max (Matt Damon), an ordinary guy in desperate need to get to Elysium. With his life hanging in the balance, he reluctantly takes on a dangerous mission – one that pits him against Elysium’s Secretary Delacourt (Jodie Foster) and her hard-line forces – but if he succeeds, he could save not only his own life, but millions of people on Earth as well.

The movie opens on August 9th. I've also included the trailer for the film below.
