Elysium just hit theaters are couple weeks ago. The movie itself looks fantastic, and here you can check out a short segment on just how they got those effects to look so fantastic. [youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=paQvKRPXTno?feature=player_embedded&w=640&h=360]
I’ve been very interested to see what Neill Blomkamp was going to do with Elysium, and today we all get to find out! In the year 2154, 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 planet. The people of Earth are desperate to escape the crime and poverty that is now rampant throughout the land. The only man with the chance to bring equality to these worlds is Max (Matt Damon), an ordinary guy in desperate need to get to Elysium.
The world of Elysium continues to take shape into something quite interesting that has the feel of an alternate timeline of District 9 or District 9 in the far future. That world is explored and shown more in this featurette focusing on the robots that are placed around the two worlds.
