Matt Damon Wages War Against Privileged Minority in Elysium Trailer

Elysium, Neill Blomkamp’s eagerly anticipated big budget District 9 follow-up, sees the lauded emerging director further exploring socially aware sci-fi in a world where earth has been abandoned by the privileged few in favored of the idyllic Elysium. With days left to live, a slum dwelling earthling, the buffed and bald Matt Damon, wages war on Elysium in the name of equality and blowing shit up (and possible personal salvation).

Elysium also stars Jodie Foster as the tyrannical mega-bitch oppressor of the masses and District 9’s Sharlto Copley as the hard-ass Special Ops dude he stands between Damon and a bourgeoisie bitch-slap.
