Its been almost three years since Neill Blomkamp’s District 9 exceeded expectations after grossing $115 million dollars at the U.S. box-office. The sci-fi picture used the presence of aliens to deal with social issues such as segregation and xenophobia . The film scored a Best Picture nomination and ended its run with almost $210 million dollars worldwide on a $30 million dollar budget. Up until now details for his next film, Elysium, have been kept under wraps. The film stars stars Matt Damon, Jodi Foster, Wagner Moura, Sharlto Copley, William Fichtner and Diego Luna. Here is the first official plot synopsis along with a copy of the preview screening ticket and a set photo . . .
In the year 2159 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 hard the 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.
