The most anticipated movie of the decade is set to land on the big screen in summer 2013. That’s right, Neil Blomkamp returns to the big screen with Elysium – the follow up to the fantastic District 9. Naturally, we are excited about Elysium and wanted to give you a preview of what to expect from what is set to be a fantastic sci-fi adventure.
So what do we know so far? Well 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, dead and ruined planet called…Earth. Secretary Rhodes (Jodie Foster), the hard line Director of Elysium, will stop at nothing to enforce anti-immigration laws and preserve the discerning and 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.
The fantastic Sharlto Copley plays Kruger, a huge obstacle in Damon’s path to bring balance to universe. Copley was core to District 9’s success and we are sure he will do a sterling job in Elysium.
As yet there is no official trailers giving us a teaser of what to expect however, Armadyne the Elysium constructers have a recruitment site, which provides a viral insight into what Elysium could be. You can even seek Elysium Citizenship! Of course – some of us guaranteed entry by simply reading Elysium Magazine!
