Matt Damon plays a man who only has a few days to live in ELYSIUM, the latest sci-fi adventure from director Neill Blomkamp (DISTRICT 9). Sporting a bald head and a spiffy exosuit for much of the film, Damon's "Max" is something of a final hope for a poor society on the verge of extinction while the 1% of humanity's wealthiest people live in a cushy space station called "Elysium."

I sat down with Damon to talk about the project's various challenges; from that complex exosuit to the ambitious fight sequences to going toe-to-toe with Sharlto Copley, who plays the film's crazed villain.

Nice

Seems like a great guy. The way he describes Sharlto reminds me of how Viggo Mortensen gets with his acting at times. I remember the LotR special features, talking about the scene in Two Towers where he goes over the cliff fighting the Warg rider. Viggo is telling the guy "i want you to really choke me so that i fight against that and it looks better on camera. I want to see finger marks on the throat after." Intense.
