Elysium wowed a lot at last year's Comic-Con, so it's no surprise were amped to see anything new from the film. The new film from the director of District 9, Neill Blomkamp, Elysium is a gritty sci-fi action piece that centers around the divide between the rich living on a pristine space-station, and the poor who have to reside on an overpopulated, polluted Earth. Check out the photo, featuring the star Matt Damon below.
The photo is pretty similar to the first look at the film we got, with bald Damon sporting some kind of exoskeleton and a gun.
The film also stars Jodie Foster, Sharlto Copley, William Fichtner, Alice Braga, Diego Luna, and Wagner Moura Elysium will hit theaters on August 9, 2013.
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 Delacourt (Jodie Foster) will stop at nothing to preserve the luxurious lifestyle of the citizens of Elysium – but that doesn’t stop the people of Earth from trying to get in by any means they can. Max (Matt Damon) agrees to take on a life-threatening mission, one that could bring equality to these polarized worlds.
