We've seen a lot of really cool shite from Neil Blomkamp's upcoming ELYSIUM so far, just yesterday sharing a groovy featurette on the hardware from the flick and earlier giving you three minutes of pure awesomeness with the films trailer, and today we have two new TV spots that show off a few new snippets of the film’s explosive action, as Matt Damon’s character attempts to infiltrate the titular Elysium in order to find the cure to a burgeoning plague down on Earth.
Directed by Neill Blomkamp, ELYSIUM stars Sharlto Copley, Jodie Foster, Matt Damon, Wagner Moura, William Fichtner, Alice Braga, and Diego Luna. Look for it in theaters August 9, 2013.
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 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.
