Although we have to wait a little longer to see the next film from District 9 director Neill Blomkamp, more images are starting to make their way online. After an initial look this summer at Elysium, we’ve got another today featuring Matt Damon and his futuristic weaponry and suit. The film, which also stars Jodie Foster, will follow Damon, whose character is dying, as he literally fights for life to get proper health care aboard a high-class space station. Check out the new image below, which features more of his surroundings, thanks to Sony Pictures as we await an official trailer.
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 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.
With a cast also led by Wagner Moura, Sharlto Copley, William Fichtner and Diego Luna, Elysium will open on August 9th, 2013.
