While Neill Blomkamp and his team have done a fantastic job of keeping pretty much everything about his upcoming sci-fi flick "Elysium" under wraps, the time for show and tell is soon arriving. Sony recently confirmed the film will be part of their one and a half hour presentation at Comic-Con in a few weeks, and a little sneak preview of sorts has arrived.

While Neill Blomkamp and his team have done a fantastic job of keeping pretty much everything about his upcoming sci-fi flick "Elysium" under wraps, the time for show and tell is soon arriving. Sony recently confirmed the film will be part of their one and a half hour presentation at Comic-Con in a few weeks, and a little sneak preview of sorts has arrived.

EW has dropped the first look at Matt Damon in the movie, and yeah, we've never really seen him like this before. Bald, with a kind of half-robotic arm job and wielding a big gun (and no, we're not sure what Chem Rail is), it's certainly an intriguing first taste of the movie. Set in 2159, Damon plays a man who takes on a daunting mission in a world where the very wealthy live on the pristine, man-made space station called Elysium, and fight to keep the citizens of Earth from illegally immigrating. Political subtext!

Co-starring Jodie Foster, Sharlto Copley, William Fichtner, Alice Braga, Diego Luna and Wagner Moura, "Elyisum" opens on March 1, 2013. Take a look at bigger pic below.
