Official Trailer for ELYSIUM

Posted on April 9, 2013 at 5:18 pm by Jess Hicks

Yesterday we got to see an awesome poster and today the trailer for Matt Damon’s new Sci-fi adventurer debuted today and boy is it pretty! Check it out below and let us know what you think of this new flick!

Official Synopsis:

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.

I’m looking forward to the new film from Neil Blomkamp, director of District 9. It’s clear he has a strong opinion of the status between the rich and the poor in the world and what better way to express than with sci-fi? Also, I’m looking forward to seeing Matt Damon in a genre he isn’t used to acting in.

Elysium hits theaters August 9th, 2013!
