The first look at Jodie Foster ('Silence of the Lambs) as Secretary Rhodes from Neill Blomkamp's latest action sci-fi 'Elysium' have been posted up on Twitter. The actress puts on her best stoney face whilst posing for the 3 new photos. Perhaps she's already in character as her role as Rhodes will be the antagonist in this particular movie. Foster stars alongside the head shaven Matt Damon ('Contagion') and Sharlto Copley whom previously worked with Blomkamp on the fantastic sci-fi flick 'District 9'. William Fichtner, Michael Shanks, Alice Braga, Diego Luna, Talisa Soto and Carly Pope all co-star and 'Elysium' lands in US theatres from 9th August 2013. Check the new photos 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. Secretary Delacourt (Jodie Foster) will stop at nothing to preserve the luxurious lifestyle of the citizens of Elysium – but that doesn’t stop the people of Earth from trying to get in by any means they can. Max (Matt Damon) agrees to take on a life-threatening mission, one that could bring equality to these polarized worlds."
'Elysium' arrives in UK theatres on 20th September 2013.
