Yet another clip from Neill Blomkamp’s highly anticipated sci-fi, Elysium, has landed on-line, and you can view the clip below. The latest video see’s Matt Damon playing Max De Costa, and he has just woken up after a traumatic operation which has left him with all sorts of hideous armory, but this new weapon will give him a way out of the poverty of Earth, and to the riches of Elysium hovering above.
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.
