Set in 2154 (or is 2159? The trailer and official site can't seem to agree), the film follows Max (Matt Damon), who's got five days to live, and decides to sneak his way into the pristine space station Elysium to get the cancer curing treatment he can't receive on a ravaged Earth. Of course, that doesn't go over so well and a bearded Sharlto Copley is sent to stop him. Yes, it's the usual blend of social issues and popcorn ready entertainment we've come to expect from Blomkamp, a mix you won't find in your average Marvel movie.
"Elysium" arrives on August 9th and will hopefully cap off the summer with a bang.
