District 9’s Neill Blomkamp is mixing social commentary and futuristic action once again in his upcoming sci-fi film Elysium. Starring Sharlto Copley, Matt Damon, and Jodie Foster, it's “a tale about a future world where two classes of people exist: ones who live on a luxurious space station and ones who live on a ruined, overcrowded Earth. One man (Damon) takes on a mission to bring equality to the worlds.”
For all you nerds out there, Elysium is the Greek interpretation of heaven, or a state of perfect bliss, and that’s where Damon wants to go. Watch the trailer below.
