They’ve been going pretty hard on their marketing campaign. It seems as though a featurette or clip gets released every second day. But we’re not complaining at all. Check out this RED BAND clip from Elyisum, the new sci-fi film from director Neill Blomkamp (District 9). It’s an awesome clip, with guts. We’re so glad the studios decided to back an R-rating (U.S.) for this one.
You can check out everything we have that’s even related to the film right HERE.
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. The people of Earth are desperate to escape the planet’s crime and poverty, and they critically need the state-of-the-art medical care available on Elysium – but some in Elysium will stop at nothing to enforce anti-immigration laws and preserve their citizens’ luxurious lifestyle. The only man with the chance to bring equality to these worlds is Max (Matt Damon), an ordinary guy in desperate need to get to Elysium. With his life hanging in the balance, he reluctantly takes on a dangerous mission – one that pits him against Elysium’s Secretary Delacourt (Jodie Foster) and her hard-line forces – but if he succeeds, he could save not only his own life, but millions of people on Earth as well.
Starring Matt Damon, Jodie Foster, Wagner Moura, Sharlto Copley, William Fichtner and Diego Luna.
