From the director who brought you the South African sci-fi thriller District 9, Neill Blomkamp, comes another film centered around a dystopian world. Set in the year 2159, Elysium stars Matt Damon as Max Da Costa forced to endure a life on an over-populated Earth blighted by poverty, crime and sickness, whilst those very wealthy few live the life of luxury on a pristine, man-made space station called Elysium. That is until he takes on a mission that could bring equality to the polarized worlds. Set to be released on August 9, check out what to expect in the trailer above.
