Neill Blomkamp's follow-up to DISTRICT 9 is the futuristic sci-fi romp ELYSIUM, which we know very little about. Yes, we've received a synopsis and some behind-the-scenes pics, but on the whole the movie has been shrouded in mystery... which makes it almost more intriguing than any other movie coming out next year.
Thanks to Entertainment Weekly's Comic-Con issue, we have a fresh look at Matt Damon in ELYSIUM, which you can see above. Looks like Damon has problems, but nothing that an awesome space gun can't handle...
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 stars Matt Damon, Jodie Foster, Sharlto Copley, William Fichtner, Diego Luna, Wagner Moura and Alice Braga (pictured below). It opens on MARCH 1, 2013.
