Matt Damon Featured In First Image From Neill Blomkamp’s ELYSIUM
Here’s your first look at Matt Damon in Columbia Pictures’ ELYSIUM. The film stars Matt Damon, Jodie Foster and Sharlto Copley.
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 hardline 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.
From director Neill Blomkamp, ELYSIUM will be in theaters March 1, 2013.
