Neil Blomkamp‘s Elysium has a new trailer making the rounds on the Internet and Matt Damon‘s getting all sci-fi-ed “Bourne” on the bad guys. Damon’s got a mission and no one is gonna stop him.
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 (Jodie Foster), 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 (Matt Damon) 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.
Elysium hits theater screens on March 1st, 2013.
What do you think of this new trailer? The last one told a little too much of the story in my opinion. This new one scales it back a bit while still getting the message across. Will you be buying a ticket?
Blomkamp’s District 9 was incredible and I’m hoping that Elysium will follow suit.
