We are just a few weeks away from the launch of Sony Picture’s sci-fi adventure ‘Elysium’. The studio has released a new trailer featuring a mostly human Matt Damon, on a mission to settle scores.
The new sci-fi action project stars Matt Damon, who was born into the lower class of a utopian society that allows the elite to hover above the poor in floating cities. The film was directed by Neill Blomkamp (District 9) and the latest extended trailer is the best look we have had at the film since it was announced.
The film had a budget of $100 million, and it’s easy to see that special effects and gigantic set design probably ate through that budget fairly quickly, but left enough to keep Matt Damon, Jodie Foster and Sharlto Copley on board. Elysiu debuts in theaters on August 9, 2013.
