Matt Damon gears up in new photo from Elysium
With all big summer movies coming out, I keep forgetting that one of my most anticipated films won’t hit theaters for another two months. It looks like the team behind ELYSIUM wants to make sure that doesn’t happen so we are treated to a new photo of star Matt Damon geared up in his mechanical backing for the film. Sony’s TriStar Pictures also mentioned that the new trailer is just a day away as well. The picture isn’t much but I’m excited to see what the director of DISTRICT 9 will do with the project. ELYSIUM stars Mat Damon, Jodie Foster, Alice Braga, Sharlto Copley, Wagner Moura, William Fichtner, Talisa Soto, Jose Pablo Cantillo and Diego Luna. The Neill Blomkamp directed film opens in theaters on August 9th, 2013. (Yahoo Movies)
ELYSIUM official synopsis: 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.
