Neill Blomkamp's ELYSIUM can't get here soon enough! With the release date just weeks away we've been getting all sorts of goods from the upcoming sci-fi flick. Earlier today we got our hands on a new poster and now the film's first ever clip has made its way online. In the clip we see Matt Damon sit down with a robot in which he has to plead his case. It's a great scene that gives us a little touch of humor as Damon's character attempts to have a conversation with this robot that looks completely uninterested. You can check it out below!
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.
ELYSIUM stars Sharlto Copley, Jodie Foster, Matt Damon, Wagner Moura, William Fichtner, Alice Braga, and Diego Luna. The film hits theaters August 9, 2013.
