First ‘Elysium’ TV spot looks awesome

It’s like Occupy Wall Street, but in space with huge guns. Sounds great. One of the movies I’m most psyched about this summer is Elysium, the new flick from Neill (District 9) Blomkamp. With all of the disappointing sci-fi flicks that we’ve already had this year, it’s about time that we get something a little more inventive. Matt Damon stars as an ordinary schmoe from the ruined Earth who desperately needs to reach Elysium, the perfectly-controlled utopia where the 1% live, and finds it harder than he ever thought. The flick also stars Alice Braga and Jodie Foster. Elysium opens on August 9th.
