FINALLY: Official Synopsis For Neill Blomkamp’s ‘Elysium’

Written by Alexander Tucker   // 06/15/2012

ElysiumAfter three years of anticipation and rumors swirling around District 9 directors Neill Blomkamp’s next project, we learned last year he would be making a film call Elysium.


Blomkamp has left all his fans in the preverbal dark . So that’s how it going to be Neill? Details of Elysium has been kept under warps and chained tiger with lock and key until now. Collider managed to get the first synopsis from Elysium:



In the year 2159 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 the 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.

I think, think, Neill Blomkamp may be the next great science fiction director, but you can’t judge a filmmaker off one film. Even a film as unique and masterful as District 9. Turning what could have been a ho-hum, low-budget alien invasion movie into a stirring and occasionally heartbreaking action drama, enough to earn itself a Best PIcture nomination and Blomkamp plenty of fans.
Elysium stars Matt Damon, Jodie Foster, Wagner Moura and Alice Braga. It is scheduled to be released on March 1, 2013. Get your popcorn ready!
