Remember the 2009 sci-fi film, “District 9″ directed by Neill Blomkamp? Of course you do, because it was effing awesome! Well news of Blomkamp’s next film entitled “Elysium” (scheduled for release in 2013), is now starting to flow! A synopsis was released recently:
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.
Now, the first official image of this sure-to-be amazing film has been released, showing star Matt Damon all armored up and ready for battle.
I’m very excited to see this! Plus, some of it will probably happen on the Elysium which should be cool. I’m always up to see action in space!
