The first poster has been released for the highly anticipated "Elysium", starring Matt Damon and Jodie Foster. From director Neill Blomkamp, this film marks his follow up to the raved reviewed "District 9" in 2009. Other than the synopsis and a couple pictures, very few details have been released for the film, keeping curiosity high.
In addition to Damon and Foster, 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 Rhodes (Jodie Foster), a hard line 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 (Matt Damon) 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.
