Two new images have been revealed from one of my most anticipated films of the year, Neill Blomkamp’s smart sci-fi, Elysium. The first image (above) has star Matt Damon having what appears to be some sort of implant in his head. The second image (below) shows Alice Braga in some distress with a young injured girl in her arms.
While the images do not show much, at least it is something while we wait (ever impatiently) for a trailer to arrive (hopefully) very soon.
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.
