The new trailer (which is in extended form) for Neil Blomkamp’s Elysium has dropped and man, is it impressive. The sense of scale on display is breath taking and Matt Damon really looks the part. For his second feature length movie, this is just mind blowing. Something else that’s noticeable is that it seems very much set in the District 9 visual world, albeit a bit more in the future. Check it out below and let us know what you think in the comments!! Oh, and we’ve got the new IMAX poster as well!
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.
Released: August 9th USA / September 20th IRELAND & UK
