Elysium picture shows shaven headed Matt Damon

November 19th, 2012 by bash Comments

We haven’t heard much from Neill Blomkamp’s film Elysium in recent months but that has now changed with this new image of Matt Damon, via Screen Crush.

This is the South African director’s first film since his much loved debut movie District 9.

A synopsis for the film reads: “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 polarised worlds.”

Elysium hits cinema screens on August 9, 2013.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
