Elysium Featurette: Matt Damon Dishes Details & More

by at .  Updated at . Comments

For those who want to go to Elysium, it can cost millions. But those of you who just want a glimpse of Elysium can do so for free, thanks to a new behind-the-scenes featurette from the film featuring Matt Damon and the brainchild behind the movie, Neill Blomkamp.

We have less than a month until the film debuts on August 9 and by now, thanks to teasers such as this Elysium trailer, you know the story of Damon’s character and how he must get to the orbiting paradise above a wretched Earth in order to beat an illness that will kill him.

What else is shown, especially in the second Elysium movie trailer, is that the power that was District 9 was no fluke. Blomkamp is a visionary and his latest -- that also stars Jodie Foster, Sharlto Copley and William Fichtner (The Lone Ranger) -- is sure to expand the South African filmmaker’s audience.
