Over the weekend Weta and Sony Pictures released the second trailer for Neill Blomkamp’s Elysium. If you caught the Man of Steel over the weekend, you probably saw this trailer. It looks as if the Summer of 2013 will end with a bang.
The Plot: 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 features Matt Damon, Jodie Foster, William Fichtner, Sharlto Copley, and Alice Braga.
Elysium arrives August 9th, 2013.
