Neill Blomkamp's Elysium

Yes District 9 was like something from a wonderful parrallel universe where action films didn't die after the 90's and become shameless cash cows to teen audiences. Blomkamp is Verhoven and Cameron when they were great (Verhoven is still good).

Elysium is without doubt my most anticipated film right now. The cast is frickin magic. The plot sounds just the right side of political. We know Blomkamp got the visuals. Can't wait.

I don't think any Comic-con footage leaked. As for the trailer, if they've got one assembled, I'd say with the Dark Knight Rises is pretty much the perfect audience but I've not heard any news of one.

New photo and synopsis (Which we might have already had). I'm hoping this leads to a trailer very soon (With The Hobbit? Jack Reacher? Django Unchained?)

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.

First shot of Sharlto Copley, along with a new synopsis - From Filmstage.com

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. The people of Earth are desperate to escape the planet’s crime and poverty, and they critically need the state-of-the-art medical care available on Elysium – but some in Elysium will stop at nothing to enforce anti-immigration laws and preserve their citizens’ luxurious lifestyle. The only man with the chance bring equality to these worlds is Max (Matt Damon), an ordinary guy in desperate need to get to Elysium. With his life hanging in the balance, he reluctantly takes on a dangerous mission – one that pits him against Elysium’s Secretary Delacourt (Jodie Foster) and her hard-line forces – but if he succeeds, he could save not only his own life, but millions of people on Earth as well.

Slashfilm wasn't too impressed by the trailer, but loved the 10 minutes they were shown:

For those of you who don’t want to watch the video, here is my opinion in brief: While I was a bit underwhelmed by the trailer, the footage kicked my ass. I’m not sure if this is because I had already seen the awesome presentation at Comic Con last year, or if it was because the trailer was a bit more of a primer for the film’s story/concept. The only reason I bring this up is that the trailer goes online tomorrow and if you aren’t impressed, trust me, you will be when you see more footage.
