In the year 2159, Wealthy people live on a space station called The Elysium, and everyone else lives in slums on a destroyed Earth. Matt Damon’s character is the one to break into Elysium with a new robotic suit contraption.
This is the second film from Neill Blomkamp, who did the fantastic District 9 (which, if you haven’t seen it, do so now). It does look a little stylistically similar, which worries me a little, but otherwise it’s really neat. And apparently Sharlto Copley plays a security guard (who looks rather evil in the trailer) and I’ll see it simply for him, too (he was amazing in District 9, the fact that it was his first time acting is even more astonishing).
Oh and Jodie Foster is in it too.
