It’s arguable that only a handful of directors have exploded onto the scene the way that Neill Blomkamp did. With ‘District 9′, Blomkamp established himself as a director to watch, and now his sophomore feature ‘Elysium’ is getting some juicy new details. The film stars Matt Damon and Jodie Foster, among others, and doesn’t come out until next March, but Collider is reporting here that preview/test screenings are beginning and include a detailed plot synopsis. It’s a bit spoiler-y, so you can see that after the jump, but it seems like it could be a very cool flick. Read on below for the synopsis…
Here you go, and again…spoilers:
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 the 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.
