Neil Blomkamp's follow up to District 9 has been in production for over two years now & the director has managed to keep the story details airtight. Today a plot synopsis has been revealed for Elysium via Collider. Up until this now all that has been revealed is that the movie is a sci-fi thriller set roughly one hundred years in the future. Matt Damon plays the main character & Jodie Foster is the head of an offworld state. The movie also stars Sharlto Copley, Wagner Moura, William Fichtner, Sonia Braga & Diego Luna. Hit the jump for the details.
Synopsis: "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 line 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 hits theaters March 1st, 2013.
