Neill Blomkamp‘s (District 9) has a new sci-fi flick called Elysium on the way if you haven’t heard, starting Matt Damon as a member of the great unwashed that are left earthside while the ultra rich and clean, like Jodie Foster, live on the space station from 2001: A Space Odyssey. By the looks of the TV spot Damon plans on pwning those space newbs.
Video and synopsis up after the jump
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 Rhodes, a hard line government ofﬁcial, will stop at nothing to enforce anti-immigration laws and preserve the luxurious lifestyle of the citizens of Elysium. That doesn’t stop the people of Earth from trying to get in, by any means they can. When unlucky Max is backed into a corner, he agrees to take on a daunting mission that if successful will not only save his life, but could bring equality to these polarized worlds.
