Grainy pics of Matt Damon knocking about in a painful looking exoskeleton aside (above, and peep more here if you missed 'em), little has been known about Neill Blomkamp's much-anticipated follow-up to his 2009 directorial debut DISTRICT 9. Until today! Read on for the newly released official synopsis... 

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 the 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.

So there you go!

Expect ELYSIUM - starring Matt Damon, Jodie Foster, Michael Shanks, Sharlto Copley, William Fichtner, Alice Braga and some other people - to hit UK cinemas March 1st.
