The first trailer for Elysium is here and it’s stunning!

Yesterday we got our first glimpse of Elysium in the above poster, today we get the first trailer.

“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 tone, the story, and the visual effects all look amazing! I loved what I saw in this first trailer, and I think the movie will end up being mind-blowing. The movie is set for August 9.

What do you guys think?
