Our Hollywood Crush, Matt Damon, stars in “Elysium” with screen gem Jodie Foster. Elysium is the highly anticipated follow up film by “District 9” director Neil Blomkamp. Written and directed by Blomkamp, the movies goes deeper into the director’s world of raw sci-fi (violent and gritty) introduced to us in his first flick “District 9”.
Set in the year 2159, where 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 Earth. Secretary Rhodes (Jodie Foster), a government official, will stop at nothing to enforce anti-immigration laws and preserve the luxurious lifestyle of the citizens of Elysium. That doesn’t stop the people of Earth from trying to get in, by any means they can. When unlucky Max (Matt Damon) is backed into a corner, he agrees to take on a daunting mission that if successful will not only save his life, but could bring equality to these polarized worlds.
Elysium opens in theaters on August 9th, 2013.
