I’ve been waiting eagerly for Neil BlomKamp’s follow up to District 9, Elysium. It seems like the man has been working on this flick forever. After delivering one of the best Sci-Fi flicks ( just this writers opinion ) it seemed like he would of been in high gear for his next flick. Well four years later we’ll finally get a chance to see it. Check out the badass poster below and I’ll see you at the midnight release on August 9th!
Plot: 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 line 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.
