Matt Damon's Mech Suit Is The Star Of First ELYSIUM Poster

Todd Brown, Founder and Editor
You'll have to wait until tomorrow to see the first trailer for District 9 director Neill Blomkamp's Elysium, but the first poster has arrived today to whet the appetite. And true to what is clearly shaping up to be Blomkamp's form, with the ideas being the stars more than the actors, that first artwork throws the focus not on Matt Damon but on the exo-skeleton mech suit he's wearing.

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. The people of Earth are desperate to escape the planet's crime and poverty, and they critically need the state-of-the-art medical care available on Elysium - but some in Elysium will stop at nothing to enforce anti-immigration laws and preserve their citizens' luxurious lifestyle. The only man with the chance bring equality to these worlds is Max (Matt Damon), an ordinary guy in desperate need to get to Elysium. With his life hanging in the balance, he reluctantly takes on a dangerous mission - one that pits him against Elysium's Secretary Delacourt (Jodie Foster) and her hard-line forces - but if he succeeds, he could save not only his own life, but millions of people on Earth as well.
