Hey, you remember Elysium? Wanna know what it’s about?
— Posted by The "Superior" Anthony
It’s been a long time since we’ve heard a peep from that Elysium film that south African director Neil Blomkamp filmed between July and December of last year. The one we hoped would be released maybe this year but won’t really be released until like 2013? Yeah, I know it’s ringing some bells in your head but not very many because we didn’t really know what the film was about and the only released information involved the stellar cast of Matt Damon, Jodie Foster, and Sharlto Copley. That ends today as some lucky internet person received the oficial synopsis for the film and was kind enough to share with the rest of us!
It’s an interesting premise and maintains the tone of District 9 and the idea of dealing with segregation but it is a little reminiscent of what was seen with the Justin Timberlake move ‘In Time’. It’s not a bad approach and I believe that Blomkamp intends to take a deeper approach and look at the effects of segregation further than that other film so I’m curious to see his work and what his final product will look like. Elysium is expected to hit theaters March 1st, 2013.
