Here’s a glimpse of the Elysium poster that has been spotted at advanced screenings for the film at the LA event. The film’s first trailer is set to arrive tomorrow at 7 pm EST.
Neill Blomkamp’s latest film is set in the year 2159, and features Matt Damon, Jodie Foster and District 9’s lead Sharlto Copley in a world where the wealthy live on a man-made space station while the rest of the population resides on a ruined Earth. Damon as a blue collar guy makes it his mission to bring equality to the polarized worlds.
Foster plays the leader of the Elysium colony who preserves the luxurious lifestyle of the citizens of Elysium.
The sci-fi thriller also stars Alice Braga, Diego Luna, Wagner Moura and William Fichtner.
Elysium opens in theaters on August 9th, 2013.
Blomkamp made one of the most surprising and original, innovative and entertaining science-fiction films in years with District 9, so many of us are counting down the days until Elysium premieres.
Check out the poster below and stay tuned for the first trailer releasing tomorrow.
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.
