ELYSIUM Poster And Photos Of Director Neill Blomkamp and Matt Damon At Berlin/LA Trailer Premiere
After rolling out 10 minutes of footage, as well as the trailer, for the LA press earlier today, Sony Pictures has unveiled this first ELYSIUM poster – the new movie by District 9 director Neil Blomkamp. The hugely anticipated preview will come online on Tuesday (4PT / 7ET). By what was bantered about on Twitter, it’s safe to say the press on hand was very excited by what they were shown.

Omfg! Have to pick up my jaw off the floor. Elysium footage was SO badass, SO awesome. Blomkamp is single-handedly pushing the sci-fi genre.

Here’s the official synopsis:
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 to 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.
Starring Matt Damon, Jodie Foster, Sharlto Copley, Alice Braga, Diego Luna, Wagner Moura, and William Fichtner, ELYSIUM will be in theaters August 09, 2013.
