At last, a synopsis for Neill Blomkamp's Elysium
It seems that some lucky bastard gets to see Neill Blomkamp's ELYSIUM before the rest of us do. Well, make that several lucky bastards.
The one thing they did share was a synopsis for the film. A photo of the invite to the screening landed at Collider headquarters. They were kind enough to let everyone in on the secret. The film is due out March 1, 2013 and stars Matt Damon, Jodi Foster, Wagner Moura, Sharlto Copley, William Fichtner and Diego Luna. I'm down. I loved DISTRICT 9.
Check out the synopsis and screening invite 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. Secretary Rhodes (Jodie Foster), a hard the 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.
