First official image from Neill Blomkamp’s “Elysium”

By

The first official image from Neil Blomkamp‘s upcoming sci-fi film, Elysium has now been released. Blomkamp and Sony have kept details surrounding Elysium under wraps so this picture is our first look at what the director of District 9 has under his sleeve. The film is set in the year 2159 where the rich live in opulence on the space station Elysium while they try to keep the poor of Earth from illegally immigrating. The image shows us a bald Matt Damon (We Bought a Zoo) wielding a very large gun along with having what seems to be some sort of robotic arm. This image has gotten me extremely excited for the film as it shows us that Blomkamp seems to have created a unique style for his world while remaining realistic. We’ll be bringing you more news from Elysium next week as we attend Sony’s San Diego Comic-Con panel in which they will hopefully show us the first footage from the film along with releasing more details. The film also stars Jodie Foster (Carnage), Sharlto Copley (District 9), William Fichtner (Drive Angry), Alice Braga (On the Road), Diego Luna (Casa de Mi Padre), and Wagner Moura (Elite Squad 2). Elysium is set to open in theaters on March 1, 2013. Check out the picture below:
