This has remained my most highly anticipated film of 2013 ever since the reactions from Comic-Con last July. This shouldn’t be surprising after coming off a dynamic piece of of work like District 9. Now, after a long wait, we have our first full trailer for Neil Blomkamp’s next scifi endeavor Elysium. Check out the full Elysium trailer below!

Elysium hits theaters August 9th!

Here is the synopsis of the film:

Elysium 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,” 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.”
