Matt Damon ('The Bourne Identity') faces a new minimalistic 'Elysium' one-sheet. The latest poster from the Neill Blomkamp ('District 9') helmed sci-fi epic features Damon's mug shamelessly stamped with an oversized font. Not too long to wait now if you reside stateside for the release of the latest in a year full of apocalyptic/post-apocalyptic sci-fi themed horrors. Sharlto Copley ('Europa Report'), Jodie Foster ('Silence of the Lambs), William Fichtner ('Drive Angry'), Michael Shanks ('Saving Hope'), Alice Braga ('I Am Legend'), Diego Luna, Talisa Soto and Carly Pope all co-star. Check out the new poster below.
"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 people of Earth are desperate to escape the planet's crime and poverty, and they critically need the state-of-the-art medical care available on Elysium – but some in Elysium will stop at nothing to enforce anti-immigration laws and preserve their citizens' luxurious lifestyle. 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. With his life hanging in the balance, he reluctantly takes on a dangerous mission – one that pits him against Elysium's Secretary Delacourt (Jodie Foster) and her hard-line forces – but if he succeeds, he could save not only his own life, but millions of people on Earth as well."
'Elysium' arrives in the US on 9 August and in the UK on 20 September.
