First ‘Elysium’ Clip Debuts

First ‘Elysium’ Clip Debuts Neill Blomkamp’s latest is set to debut on August 9th and the marketing campaign is ramping up as the first clip from the film has arrived with Matt Damon taking the spotlight in it. The film brings Blomkamp back to the science fiction side of things after District 9 and also stars Jodie Foster, Sharlto Copley, Alice Braga, Wagner Moura, Diego Luna and William Fichtner.

Plot Concept: 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.
