Neill Blomkamp made big waves with his directorial debut District 9 in 2009. Since then, fans have been clamoring to see what he’ll bring us next. Since Elysium‘s announcement fans have been eager to see more. Now we have the first trailer for the highly anticipated sci-fi movie.
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, a 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 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.
