First Image Of Matt Damon In Neil Blomkamp’s “Elysium”
It’s been awhile since we last heard about Neil Blomkamp’s follow-up film after his smash debut in 2009’s District 9, but Sony has announced that his next feature film, Elysium, will be part of their presentation at San Diego Comic-Con.
With the footage set to appear during their hour and a half panel, this first image of a bald, gun wielding Matt Damon has come up.
Official synopsis below:
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.
The film co-stars Jodie Foster, Sharlto Copley, Diego Luna, Alice Braga and William Fichtner.
