First look at Jodie Foster in Neill Blomkamp’s ‘Elysium’ shows off intense character




Neill Blomkamp’s follow up to District 9, Elysium, is one of the most anticipated sci-fi films of this year, yet we still have not seen very much of it. The film is not due in cinemas until 9th August, so a trailer is still likely some way off. So, basically, we are happy with whatever we can get, and while we have already had a look a Matt Daomn’s hero and Sharlto Copley’s villain, we now have an unofficial look at Jodie Foster’s character  through the Twitter feed Simply Jodie (via Bleeding Cool).

Foster plays Secretary Rhodes, an intense and powerful character who runs Elysium, the floating colony that hovers above Earth. In the film, Damon’s Max attempts to reunite Earth with Elysium, but he must try to convince the hard nosed Rhodes. From the looks of Foster’s images, she will be a tough cookie to crack, and those that have seen a small amount of footage at last years Comic Con have said that Foster is very meaty in the role.

Written and directed by Neill Blomkamp, Elysium stars Matt Damon, Jodie Foster, Sharlto Copley, William Fichtner, Michael Shanks and Alice Braga.

Elysium will arrive in UK cinemas 9th August.


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.

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
