It's been a while since we heard anything about writer-director Neill Blomkamp's new sci-fi movie, Elysium, the follow-up to his extraordinary 2009 feature debut, District 9. While set photos have revealed that the movie will star a bald Matt Damon, little has been revealed about the movie's plot outside of Blomkamp describing it as a sci-fi movie with "sociopolitical ideas" inside a "Hollywood action film." Casting notices also informed us that Jodie Foster was going to appear in the movie, but nothing was known about her role.
Thankfully, a synopsis for Elysium has finally been revealed via Collider. The site discovered a ticket for an advance preview that offered a detailed explanation of the movie, which indeed pays off on Blomkamp's promise of action interwoven into a deeper theme, not unlike what he accomplished with District 9. read the synopsis >> Posted 06.15.12 by Ryan
