The trailer for the highly anticipated "Elysium" just dropped, and Matt Damon plays a bald, tatted-up badass! Move over, Bruce Willis!
Check out the synopsis below:
In the year 2154, 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 preserve their citizens’ luxurious lifestyle.
The only man with the chance to 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.
If the sci-fi flick is reminiscent of "District 9," it's because it is also directed by Neill Blomkamp. Damon will have some help in his fight, thanks to the help of a surgically attached harness that gives him superhuman strength (just watch as he rips the head off a robot).
Foster, who revealed at the Golden Globes she was cutting back on films, plays a government official with strict anti-immigration laws, a departure given her well-known liberal views.
