Matt Damon & Alice Braga in New Images from Blomkamp's 'Elysium'

We've been waiting quite awhile for a better impression of Neill Blomkamp's follow-up to District 9, another original sci-fi film called Elysium. Last year's Comic-Con introduce audiences to some footage which impressed quite a bit, and we've seen a couple photos featuring Matt Damon and Sharlto Copley all decked out in technology. Now a couple more photos of Damon and co-star Alice Braga have surfaced with the promise of the first trailer finally debuting next Tuesday, which is the day after some sort of viral film footage event is taking place in a few locations. I love the combination of grit and future sci-fi technology in these photos. It seems like this could be yet another really special sci-fi film from Blomkamp.

Here are the two new photos from Neill Blomkamp's Elysium from Flicks and Bits (via Collider):

Elyisum - First Look - Alice Braga

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 the 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. Neill Blomkamp writes directs Elyisum and Sony sends the film to theaters August 9th, 2013.

  • I don't know if there is a movie I'm more excited for right now. I have to say I REALLY can't stand Alice Braga, though.

    Im really looking forward to this, I just hope its doesnt get too preachy with social commentary and what not.

      Good sci-fi slides those themes in from the side and underneath without you being completely aware of it at the time.

        FANTASTIC sci fi movies slide those themes in, good ones are the ones that couldve been a lot better if they didnt suffer for being in your face about the writer/directors political standpoints.
  • Gustavo Dornas
    The man with Matt Damon is Wagner Moura, a good actor from Brazil
  • Tester
    I have a feeling that Jodie Foster is going to be excellent in this particular role. Comment aside, I am also looking forward to this movie

      Trailer is next week Tuesday, a day after some clips are shown in 4 different locations.

    Braganza looks just like Emily Bunt in that photo. If she acts even half as well, she'll be good. Damon I already love
  • Xerxexx
