      Elysium

      Elysium
      A trailer for Neill Blomkamp's new sci-fi 'Elysium' has finally hit the Internet. After teasing the first poster hours before, we now get to see WTF that cool exoskeleton is that Matt Damon is wearing.


      2154AD, a society divided; poverty, disease and war have ravished our Earth. The rich however, have managed to create and emigrate to a perfect world in space, Elysium. Being on the Earth side of a better life, Matt Damon seeks to jump the gap between societies, with the help of some futuristic biomedical welding and a wicked performance enhancing exoskeleton.

      The world of 2154 look impressively generated. Elysium boasts a balanced mix of out-of-this-world and achievable technology, whilst Earth appears to be a huge slum, slowly degrading and falling apart. The roots of Blomkamp's brilliant 2009 sci-fi District 9 are clear, as the technology and reality seamlessly integrate and interact with each other.

      We get a brief glimpse of Jodie Foster looking rather comfortable living her swish Elysium lifestyle, and also Blomkamp favourite, and star of District 9, Sharlto Copley.

      Action ahoy as Damon tears his way through "the most heavily guarded place in the universe..." We're on board!

      Elysium is released in the UK 20th September 2013.
