New pics from Neill Blomkamp’s Elysium

April 5th, 2013 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments

It’s a rare feat to find something new about director Neill Blomkamp‘s upcoming sci-fi film Elysium, and I’ve really been trying! But today we’ve got not one, but two new photos to show you! The pics feature Matt Damon whose bionic parts are being inspected and Alice Braga’s character with an injured child.

Hopefully we’ll see a trailer for this soon. Word is the Comic-Con footage last year was awesome, even though the effects weren’t done yet. I can’t wait!

“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.”

The movie also stars Jodie Foster, Sharlto Copley, Wagner Moura, Diego Luna, and William FichtnerElysium is set to hit theatres on August 9th, 2013.
