Incredible second trailer for Neill Blomkamp’s Elysium

Sony Pictures has released a second trailer for District 9 director Neill Blomkamp’s new film Elysium. If anything this trailer makes me even more excited for the film than the firs. good god this looks good.

The film is set in 2159, and the human race is divided. The rich live on a man-made space station called Elysium, while the poor inhabit the ruins of an overpopulated world. This is the story of a man who must find a way to break into Elysium to save his life.

The film stars Matt Damon in the lead, alongside Jodie Foster, Sharlto Copley, Alice Braga, Wagner Moura, Diego Luna and William Fichtner.

Elysium is out in Ireland on August 23rd.

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.
