A new image for Neill Blomkamp’s upcoming “Elysium” has been released, which showcases a bald Matt Damon carrying a huge gun. This film is the next addition to Blomkamp’s film resume, following his 2009 fan-boy hit, “District 9”, and both films fall under the Sony Pictures umbrella.
In addition to Damon, the cast includes Sharlto Copley, Wagner Moura, William Fichtner, Sonia Braga and Diego Luna.
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 Delacourt (Jodie Foster) will stop at nothing to preserve the luxurious lifestyle of the citizens of Elysium – but that doesn't stop the people of Earth from trying to get in by any means they can. Max (Matt Damon) agrees to take on a life-threatening mission, one that could bring equality to these polarized worlds.
“Elysium” hits AMC Theatres on August 9th 2013.
