The trailer for Neil Bombkamp’s follow up to District 9, Elysium, released this week and the early marketing continues on today as we have new images from the movie to show you!

For those of you who haven’t watched the trailer (watch here) read a quick synopsis:

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,” the synopsis reads. “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.

Now on to the pictures!

    Neil Bombkamp and Matt Damon making a movie about social class. I am sure there will be no heavy handed political messages in this movie at all.
