It seems that Sony Pictures can do no wrong when it comes to Neill Blomkamp's sci-fi epic "Elysium". A new extended trailer and a poster have been released and the trailer is absolutely amazing, featuring 3 minutes of thorough plot and character motivations as well as mind-blowing action set pieces and visual effects. The film stars Matt Damon, Jodie Foster, Wagner Moura, Alice Braga, Sharlto Copley and William Fichtner. "Elysium" opens on August 9, 2013.
Check out the trailer and poster after the jump.
"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 (Jodie Foster), a hard line 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 (Matt Damon) 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."
