Matt Damon in "Elysium" EW
The second trailer for Neill Blomkamp's spectacular-looking sci-fi entry "Elysium" (August 8) has arrived. This one plays up Matt Damon's innate likability -- in the film he stars as an illness-stricken everyman who reluctantly takes on a dangerous mission against the wealthy Elysium metropolis' head secretary of state (Jodie Foster). Watch below.

The film is Blomkamp's follow-up to 2009's popular and Oscar-nominated "District 9." The star of that film, Sharlto Copley, also has a villainous role in "Elysium." 

Fans flipped over the initial footage of the film at last year's Comic-Con, where we got a video interview with Blomkamp and recorded the Hall H panel with Damon and Foster. The first trailer for the film is here.
