Matt Damon and Jodie Foster also pop up in the featurette, diving into some brief character details and plot information. This could be another powerful sci-fi film that makes waves like District 9 did. Watch below!
Here's the new making of featurette for Neill Blomkamp's Elyisum, originally from AOL:
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?
