Matt Damon & Sharlto Copley's Showdown In New ELYSIUM Image (Hi-Res)

Perhaps the most exciting snippets of footage from the Elysium trailer were the ones depicting a battle between Matt Damon and Sharlto Copley in their mechanized suits. Come see a new pic!

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 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.

ELYSIUM written and directed by Neill Blomkamp ("District 9"). The film stars Matt Damon, Jodie Foster, Sharlto Copley, Wagner Moura, Alice Braga and Carly Pope. It opens in theaters August 9th, 2013.

I hope that they mount an effective marketing campaign. Thus far Oblivion and After Earth (with two A list stars) was not a rousing success. I loved District 9 so ai am hoping Neill Blomkamp can work his magic again.

They really need to step up on the advertising. This movie's coming out in two months and I forgot it even existed.

"Come see a new pic!" did you mean video? i was hoping to see a photo, not a video that crashes on ipads. and those arent MECH suits, their more of a small exo skeleton or frame.

This looks underwhelming and boring, but I'm watching it first day, I loved what he did with District 9. Hope this is good!
