While much of Neill Blomkamp’s District 9 follow up is a great big mystery, it might all change as the film known as Elysium descends on the mighty Comic-Con convention. While it is not known exactly what will be revealed when the film joins Sony’s big panel on Friday, fans are hoping that they just might get to see some footage of the eagerly anticipated film.
Director Neill Blomkamp will be on the panel, along with stars Matt Damon, Sharlto Copley and Jodie Foster. In the run up to Elysium’s big moment on Friday, a spaceship from the film has been spotted outside the Hard Rock Cafe, which is adjacent to the convention. Check out the images below for a little taste of what we can expect from Blomkamp’s latest film, and the recently revealed synopsis might help you understand a little more on the film.
Written and directed by Neill Blomkamp, Elysium stars Matt Damon, Jodie Foster, Sharlto Copley, William Fichtner, Michael Shanks and Alice Braga.
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, a 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 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.
