First look at Sharlto Copley in Elysium

December 28th, 2012 by bash Comments

Here is our first look at Sharlto Copley as the villain Kruger in Elysium.

The picture comes via Empire Magazine and sees the South African actor team up again with District 9 filmmaker Neill Blomkamp for the thriller.

He joins Matt Damon, Jodie Foster, Wagner Moura, Alice Braga and Diego Luna in the sci-fi movie.

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 polarized 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.
