First 'Elysium' Trailer Debuts Online (Video)
"District 9" helmer Neill Blomkamp directs the sci-fi epic starring Matt Damon and Jodie Foster.
The wait is over for a first look at Elysium, the sophomore effort from District 9 helmer Neill Blomkamp.
In the sci-fi film’s first trailer, a bald-headed and tech-enhanced Matt Damon is seen living in the slums that seem to have popped up all over Earth. The wealthy, including a sinister-looking Jodie Foster, orbit Earth on a space station called Elysium, where poverty and illness don’t exist.
The trailer reveals that Damon’s character, Max, has a plan to help the poor back on Earth. The plan involves sneaking on to Elysium, to do what remains unclear. But it definitely involves big guns, killer robots and Max undergoing a painful surgical procedure to turn him into a one-man army.
The Columbia/Media Rights Capital film is slated for an Aug. 9 release.
