THE MOVIE: Neill Blomkamp, the visionary director behind District 9, is prepping a new high-concept science fiction film starring Matt Damon. In Elysium, the world of the future is divided along harsh class lines: the rich live in a pristine orbital space station while the poor are left to populate a ruined Earth.
Matt Damon plays a presumably normal Earthling who is sent on a daring mission that might just bring equality to a fractured world.
Elysium co-stars Jodi Foster, Wagner Moura, Sharlto Copley, William Fichtner, and Diego Luna. You can expect the film in theaters on March 1st, 2013.
