Elysium TV Spot

"There's no coming back from this." More, more, more! We've featured one TV spot before, but have been waiting for Sony to unleash more TV spots for Neill Blomkamp's new sci-fi Elysium. We still have over a month until this hits theaters, but it's getting closer and closer every day. This new TV spot jumps ahead in the storyline with Matt Damon compared to the other two full-length trailers we've seen so far, but still packs a punch. There isn't really much new footage to be seen, but it's all about the energy and idea behind this new sci-fi. My most anticipated movie left to see this summer. Fire up the latest 30-second spot below!

Here's the second TV spot for Neill Blomkamp's Elysium, originally found via TheMovieBox:

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?

Is that a press release photo on top or is it from the trailer, because it is AWESOME

Love that on Jul 1, 2013


Nah that photo is from this new TV spot! Took the screencap myself.

Major kudos! That should be the poster! Do you know if they will show the whole thing at comicon?

Love that on Jul 1, 2013


I don't know for sure yet, but my guess is yes. I really hope they do. I want to see it there!

Alex Billington on Jul 1, 2013


Even though I won't be in attendance, they better show it there. I've said this before, but I love coming back to this site because of how much you cover Neill Blomkamp's films. Hopefully Sony can recapture the same magic D9 had. I've heard nothing but great things about this film from people that attended the test screenings last year.

Chris Bob on Jul 1, 2013


Buzz from screenings is supposed to be good. But Sony is having a bad year, and I worry about their promotion. I'm gay for Matt Damon so I will see it regardless, but public awareness seems lacking to me.

In fairness to Sony--well, at least their marketing team--how are they supposed to proposition inevitably shitty movies for financial or critical success? Roland Emmerich... Adam Sandler... lol, there's only so much they can do to try and reel in an audience for those hacks. However, in the case of 'Elysium', it comes from a director that at least knows what he's doing. I fully expect Sony to try and retrace the marketing tactics they employed for D9 (and really, you're already seeing it with the 'traffic' billboards in Los Angeles and NY) so I think the film will do fine. Besides, it's not like there's any competition in August anyway.

Chris Bob on Jul 1, 2013


Sony announced their panel line-up, and 'Elysium' isn't on the list. That's pretty disappointing.

@buddha1822:disqus have you heard that Stan Lee "confirmed" that Marvel is in fact making a Black Panther movie?

Fidel Reyes on Jul 1, 2013


"I'm not involved in those decisions anymore, but the people at Marvel are spending hours trying to think 'what will we do next?' and there's a damn good chance that they will think of just what you mentioned, 'cos it would be a great idea and little by little everything you want to see will come along, because [Marvel] are just like you, they're fans of the stories and they're trying to think 'what would the fans like to see next? What would we like to see next?' So they're working on Ant-Man, they're working on Doctor Strange, they're working on Guardians of the Galaxy, they're working on god knows what. And did I say Black Panther also. Those are the ones I know about and there are others that I don't even know about, and shame on them for not telling me." -Stan Lee, June 29th

am I the only one underwhelmed by all the trailers? The "suit" just seems like a mechanical limb attached to his body, it doesn't visually make him look all that different lol, idk, maybe I'm just too used to anime type esque transformations where the "power" is notably different even in attire xd

dvt on Jul 2, 2013


I like the fact that the suit looks practical and not "pretty". No need to dress up the power it gives him.

Ali Miller on Jul 2, 2013


Bingo. But I still think the design looks great. Looks both pretty and functional.

Chris Bob on Jul 2, 2013


Personally I'm thrilled it looks like Blomkamp designed it, and not something cheesy like Oblivion.
