First look at Sharlto Copely in Elysium
We've got a new look at Neil Blomkamp's highly anticipated Elysium, giving us our first taste of the movie's villain Kruger, played by Sharlto Copely, who made quite an impression in Blomkamp's debut, District 9. I'm really digging the dystopian look of Elysium, and with a great cast also including Jodie Foster and Matt Damon, I'm expecting Blomkamp to knock it out of the park again.
Synopsis: 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, a 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 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
