First Clip From “Elysium” Features Matt Damon

July 24, 2013

I’m getting pretty excited about ELYSIUM. The behind the scenes look we got from WETA was pretty cool and now we got the first clip.

Matt Damon attempts to have a conversation with a robot, which reminds me of the taxi from Total Recall. Perhaps there’s some inspiration from THX 1138 in there as well.

Synopsis: “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 Delacourt (Jodie Foster) will stop at nothing to preserve the luxurious lifestyle of the citizens of Elysium – but that doesn’t stop the people of Earth from trying to get in by any means they can. Max (Matt Damon) agrees to take on a life-threatening mission, one that could bring equality to these polarized worlds.

The new science fiction film comes from District 9 director Neill Blomkamp. It hits theaters on August 9th.
