Must Watch: Extended Second Trailer for Neill Blomkamp's 'Elysium'
"This ain't gunna kill me." Sony has revealed the second trailer, playing before Man of Steel this weekend, for District 9 director Neill Blomkamp's sci-fi Elysium starring Matt Damon. The first trailer hit back in March and gave us an introduction to the concept and a glimpse at some of the action. This time we get more scenes of incredible full-on action and more of Blomkamp's visually stunning futuristic world. The cast includes Jodie Foster, William Fichtner, Alice Braga and D9's Sharlto Copley as the badass Kruger. This is now my most anticipated movie still left this summer, everything about it looks awesome. Can't wait!
Watch the extended second trailer for Neill Blomkamp's Elysium, originally from Yahoo:
Elysium, directed by South African filmmaker Neill Blomkamp (of District 9), focuses on Secretary Rhodes (Foster), a hardened government ofﬁcial, who will stop at nothing to enforce anti-immigration laws and preserve the luxurious lifestyle of the citizens of Elysium. However, that doesn’t stop the people of Earth from trying to get in, by any means they can. When unlucky Max (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 screenplay was written by Neill Blomkamp. Read more about the film's composer Ryan Amon here. Sony/Columbia has Elysium set to hit theaters on August 9th this summer. You down?
Update: Added the latest IMAX poster for Elysium seen directly above, also revealed with this new trailer.
