If you are looking forward to Neill Blomkamp’s District 9 follow up, Elysium, then you are going to love this new featurette which has just been released. The two minute promo video looks at the design of Matt Damon’s weapon, which has been attached to his actual skeleton. The design of the weapon is very cool, but in some places in this video looks quite painful.
Either way, it is a very impressive weapon, and I can’t wait to see how it works for real in the film. The below featurette also boasts some new footage from the upcoming sci-fi.
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. The people of Earth are desperate to escape the planet’s crime and poverty, and they critically need the state-of-the-art medical care available on Elysium – but some in Elysium will stop at nothing to enforce anti-immigration laws and preserve their citizens’ luxurious lifestyle. The only man with the chance to bring equality to these worlds is Max (Matt Damon), an ordinary guy in desperate need to get to Elysium. With his life hanging in the balance, he reluctantly takes on a dangerous mission – one that pits him against Elysium’s Secretary Delacourt (Jodie Foster) and her hard-line forces – but if he succeeds, he could save not only his own life, but millions of people on Earth as well.
