The quickest way for Matt Damon fans to forget about Promised Land is by watching the trailer for this summer’s sci-fi extravaganza, Elysium.
Brought to us by District 9 director Neill Blomkamp, the amped up thriller plops us in the year 2154 in which the wealthy live on a resort-like space station, with regular folk left to fend for themselves on the burned out, rotting remnant of Earth.
The film features a bulked up, buzzed Damon, Jodie Foster and Sharlto Copley.
Damon plays Max, who decides it’s time for the “rest of us” to take down Elysium.
“They will hunt you to the edge of the Earth for this,” comes a warning.
The action looks positively stellar. With Oblivion on the horizon and now this, it’s shaping up to be a good year for sci-fi fans.
Elysium will be released Aug. 9.
