Elysium - IMAX Theatrical Poster - Courtesy of Yahoo! Movies and TriStar PicturesSony’s TriStar Pictures has released a featurette for Neill Blomkamp‘s Elysium. The sci-fi thriller stars Matt DamonJodie FosterSharlto CopleyAlice BragaDiego LunaWagner MouraTalisa Soto, and William Fichtner. The film opens in the theaters everywhere beginning on August 9th.

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. 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. In addition to directing, Blomkamp wrote the screenplay as well.
