Movie News


Leaked set pics aside, this is currently the only official pic that exists for sci-fi flick ELYSIUM, the eagerly awaited second movie from DISTRICT 9's Neill Blomkamp. Still not a whole lot to go on is it! Not to worry, for the wait is nearly over - expect a big unveiling at the coming San Diego Comic-Con. In the meantime here's the plot skinny for those who missed it recently...

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.

Expect ELYSIUM - starring Matt Damon, Jodie Foster, Michael Shanks, Sharlto Copley, and William Fichtner - to hit UK cinemas March 1st 2013.
