Talk of District 9 director Neill Blomkamp's new movie Elysium has been relatively quiet, with months past since pictures of a bald-headed Matt Damon on set appeared. A plot synopsis has since appeared via the fine folks at Collider.com
"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 ofï¬?cial, 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.
Sharlton Copley, William Fitchner, Jodie Foster, Alice Braga and Diego Luna also star in the film which is due in March.
