First Look At Matt Damon In Neill Blomkamp's ELYSIUM
Check out the first official image of a bald, gun toting Matt Damon in the District 9 director's upcoming sci-fi flick, which Sony have confirmed will part of their one and a half hour presentation at Comic-Con in a few weeks..
Sci-fi fans should be anticipating this one quite a bit, since it's being directed by the man responsible for the fantastic District 9. Like that movie, Elysium is expected to combine action with sociopolitical ideas. EW have debuted the first image of Matt Damon as the movie's "hero" Max..
In the year 2159, two classes of people exist: the very wealthy "Coordinators," people who can afford bio-genetical engineering, who live on a pristine man-made space station called Elysium, built by the Armadyne Corporation, and the rest, who live on an overpopulated, ruined Earth. Secretary Rhodes, a hard 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 ex-con 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.
Elysium also stars Jodie Foster, Wagner Moura, Sharlto Copley and Alice Braga. It is scheduled to be released on March 1, 2013.
