Poster Debut: Elysium

The first official poster for Elysium, Neill Blomkamp’s long-awaited follow-up to District 9, has arrived online.


The flick stars Matt Damon and Jodie Foster. Though the plot has been kept under wraps for a number of years, a new synopsis gives us a good idea of what to expect.

“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 Rhodes (Jodie Foster), a hard line government official will stop at nothing to enforce anti-immigration laws and preserve the luxurious lifestyle of the citizens of Elysium. That doesn’t stop the people of Earth from trying to get in, by any means they can. When unlucky Max (Matt Damon) is backed into a corner, he agrees to take on a daunting mission that if successful will not only save his life, but could bring equality to these polarized worlds.”

If we learnt anything from District 9, this will just be the tip of the iceberg when it comes to what actually takes place in the film. Also, expect lots of exploding heads.

It arrives in cinemas August 15, 2013.
