New ELYSIUM Blu-Ray Featurette Released; "Casting Matt Damon"

Ahead of the release of Elysium on DVD and Blu-ray this Tuesday, another brief excerpt from one of the featurettes has been releasef, this time focusing on Neill Blomkamp's decision to cast Matt Damon (The Adjustment Bureau) as Max. Hit the jump to check it out!








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.
