Matt Damon looks like he has another hit with the futuristic film from District 9 filmmaker Neill Blomkamp, Elysium. In the flick he portrays a man who lives on earth in the 22nd century who becomes seriously ill and only has five days to live. And from the latest Elysium poster, it also looks like Damon is pumped up and ready for action.
See, during this time, the privileged live on an orbiting community called Elysium and the rest of us toil on Earth. Up on Elysium there is no war, no poverty and no illness. Damon’s character must get up there if he wants to live.
What the first Elysium trailer teased is expanded on in this third theatrical version, and at over two-and-a-half minutes, this is the most we’ve seen from the film that also stars Jodie Foster.
From our Matt Damon Elysium Comic-Con interview, the film also sounds like it is one of the blockbuster actor’s favorites in his entire career.
Unfortunately, we have to wait until August 8 to see it!
