First official poster for Neill Blomkamp’s Elysium

April 8th, 2013 by Irwin Fletcher Comments

Sony Pictures is finally unveiling the first trailer tomorrow, so stay in touch with FTN. To tide you over we’ve got a cool debut poster, which features our protagonist Matt Damon making use of his high-tech exoskeleton suit.


“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 arrives on August 9.
