How exactly do you follow up your first film which happened to be nominated for Best Picture? You get Matt Damon and Jodie Foster to star in your second sci-fi epic of course.

Elysium takes place in the year 2154 where the rich and privileged live on board a floating utopia named…you guessed it, Elysium. Matt Damon stars as Max Coburn, an ex-con that lives on the ruined shambles of Earth with the rest of the sick and poor. He has a plan to infiltrate Elysium to find the medical care he needs to save his life. To do this he is outfitted with a robotic device that connects to his spine and connects to his arms giving him super strength.

I will go ahead and say that, personally, I was not the biggest fan of District 9. I thought it was a pretty good movie, but couldn’t heap all the praise on it that was given. I am decidedly more excited about Elysium.

Check out the first trailer for the huge sci-fi film below. Elysium releases on August 9th.

    This has to be one of the most epic sci-fi spring/summers of all time. Am I wrong?
