“He can save us all.” Sony has unveiled the last (and bland) poster for District 9 director Neill Blomkamp’s sci-fi action film Elysium starring Matt Damon. Check out the poster below.
In the year 2154, 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 planet. The people of Earth are desperate to escape the crime and poverty that is now rampant throughout the land. 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 hardline forces – but if he succeeds, he could save not only his own life, but millions of people on Earth as well.
Despite the bland poster, I’m still excited for this film. District 9 is one of the best sci-fi films I’ve seen in recent memory and the trailers for Elysium have been impressive. Elysium arrives in conventional theaters and IMAX on August 9th. The film co-stars Sharlto Copley, William Fichtner, Alice Braga, and Diego Luna. What do you think of the latest poster?
