The debut trailer for Neill Blomkamp’s new sci-fi thriller Elysium is finally here.
Starring Matt Damon, Jodie Foster and Sharlto Copley, Elysium is “Set in the year 2159, where the very wealthy live on a man-made space station while the rest of the population resides on a ruined Earth, a man takes on a mission that could bring equality to the polarized worlds.”
After District 9 put director Neill Blomkamp on the map back in 2009, Elysium appears to have more of the same social commentary aspects as were delivered in District 9, along with a much bigger budget and a more stellar cast.
Along with Elysium, we also have more original work in the form of Oblivion and Pacific Rim. 2013 is shaping up to be a good year for sci-fi fans.
Elysium will be released in the UK on September 20th.
