It seems like forever since we spoke to Elysium stars Matt Damon and Jodie Foster at Comic-Con 2012. Now, thankfully, it is merely two weeks away until we can see director Neill Blomkamp’s next visionary work hit theaters August 9. To feed that fire of anticipation, Sony has released a new clip -- called The Heist -- that sends the thrill meter into the red zone.
The clip features Damon’s character in a battle against some nasty droids, who appear to be controlled by William Fichtner. See, Damon is trying to get to the orbiting-above-Earth paradise that shares the name of the film’s title. He’s dying and the only way to survive is to get to Elysium.
District 9 filmmaker Blomkamp has crafted a world that is equally as compelling as his last film, and might we say, stretches the movie-making envelop even further. Check out the Elysium trailer, but be warned, the film will shoot to the top of your must-sees for August!
