Elysium is director Neill Blomkamp‘s latest film, following the 2009 hit District 9. We posted a few pictures and a video awhile back, which was the kick start of the viral marketing campaign for Elysium, but other than that no further plot details or information has been given about the movie, which makes sense because the film isn’t due out until 2013.
Now a few interesting set images have been released and one particular image caught my eye. The image features Matt Damon wearing some sort of infused body armor. The image is kind of spoilerish, but I don’t think it will hurt anything just yet, since we don’t really know anything about the film. But let this act as a warning, POSSIBLE SPOILER IMAGE BELOW!
I like it. I liked the way they infused weapons with aliens in District 9 and I am glad that Blomkamp is bringing that with in Elysium. From the looks of the photo, Matt Damon will be involved in some action with results badly for him. It’s funny how such a simple image, poorly captured with no context can get such excitement from an audience! I know I along with tons of others out there are very excited to see what Elysium is about and if Blomkamp can deliver the goods again!
Elysium stars Matt Damon, Jodie Foster, Alice Braga, Sharlto Copley and William Fichtner. It is set to be released on March 1st, 2013.
