Matt Damon turns his back in the first Elysium poster
A few days ago we finally got some new images from the new science-fiction film ELYSIUM. Today, we get the first poster. I’m hoping the highly anticipated first trailer will follow suit in the next few days. The poster isn’t bad. While it does plaster the film’s star Matt Damon front and center, at least his back is turned with the focus more on the crazy mechanics he has to wear.
Set in the year 2159, there are two classes of people: “the very wealthy who live on a pristine man-made space station called Elysium, and the rest, who live on an overpopulated, ruined Earth.” After director Neill Blomkamp’s last film DISTRICT 9, I can safely say, I am very much looking forward to ELYSIUM.
ELYSIUM stars Matt Damon, Jodie Foster, Alice Braga, Sharlto Copley, Wagner Moura, William Fichtner, Talisa Soto, Jose Pablo Cantillo and Diego Luna. Neill Blomkamp will direct the film that opens in theaters on August 9th, 2013.
