Neill Blomkamp knocked it out of the park with his debut picture, the critically acclaimed DISTRICT 9. Can he repeat the success with his second, the mysterious sci-fi flick ELYSIUM? Well, we wish we could tell you, because so far very little is known about the hush hush project, other than it's set 150 years in the future on another planet, and according to the director himself "is violent, very violent, and very unique". The film stars Matt Damon, Jodie Foster, William Fitchner, Alice Braga, and Blomkamp's original leading man Shalto Copely. Oh, and there's that typically cryptic viral video that debuted recently...

But it's these just leaked set pics of a pained Damon wrapped in some form of exo-skeleton that really whet the appetite. Any ideas what's going on here?

I guess we'll have to wait until March 2013 to find out. Or in a few months when the marketing machine kicks into gear.
