The New Elysium Trailer Is Amazing, Watch It Here
Wow. This latest trailer for Neil Blomkamp's Elysium is nothing short of breathtaking. Matt Damon stars as Max de Costa, living on the hellish remains of Earth after all the wealthy folk have shipped off to the space station Elysium. On Elysium, the likes of disease, crime and death are a thing of a past, but such privileges are closely guarded.
Until now, most of the teaser footage has centered around the utopian space station, and quite rightly because it is beautifully imagined. However, with these latest 3 minutes, we get to delve into the hell hole that is Earth and discover the driving force behind de Costa's quest to reach Elysium. Witness robot overlords, mind-blowing action and de Costa's transformation into some form of hybrid war machine.
This trailer gives us every indication that Elysium could be every bit as good as Blomkamp's most famous effort, District 9. Roll on August 9th!
