A new amazing trailer has been released for Neil Blomkamp's sci-fi thriller "Elysium". The Matt Damon and Jodi Foster starring project continues to gain momentum, as every piece of marketing materials we've seen thus far has been fantastic.
Blomkamp is certainly an up-and-coming director to watch. His style and approach are very unique and memorable. The dominant political themes in both his critically acclaimed "District 9" as well as the looks of "Elysium", deal with some glaring problems found in politics, social segregation, health care and so on, set up against an impressive sci-fi backdrop.
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 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.
