We’ve been teasing you for days now and finally it has arrived. The trailer for Neill Blomkamp‘s District 9 follow up, titled Elysium, is here.
And it’s fucking phenomenal. I’m already seeing the similarities to D9, while also seeing so much more on display. Blomkamp clearly hasn’t lost his touch at all and if anything is only making something a little bigger in scope, yet still as smart and sci-fi heavy as his last film, which is quite the achievement.
Elysium couldn’t be coming at a better time. This year has mostly sucked so far (aside from a few films that have stuck out) and I think I speak for everyone when I say that we’ve been waiting for, if not downright craving another science fiction film that has the brains and the action.
The film stars Matt Damon, Jodie Foster and Sharlto Copley.
