The Elysium trailer has landed and its looks Epic!!
Neil Blomkamp (best known for his excellent Sci-Fi film ‘District 9′ is back to work directing ‘Elysium’ starring (the every mans hero) Matt Damon and Jodie Foster.
Blomkamp is also bringing back Sharlto Copley from District 9 and this time he’s looking a lot meaner than the awkward character he played before. If you’ve not seen D9 check it out: District 9 Blu-Ray and the DVD.
I may have Slightly Inner-Geeked this up….
Elysium takes place in the future (the year 2159 to be exact) and man lives on a ruined Earth. The uber rich however live on a man-made space station having a great time! A mission is given to the one and only Matt Damon that could bring equality to the polarized worlds. Damon then gets pimped up with tech and goes to kick some Space Ass!!
I’ve got to say the trailer looks awesome and the storyline is definitely intriguing. I just hope Blomkamp pulls this off as it was always going to be hard to follow D9.
Could this be the Sci-Fi film of the year. Lets wait and see. Its hitting theatres in the US on the 9th August and the UK 20th September (why the long delay guys. Come on I wanna see this!!)
Enjoy the Trailer…
