From the trailer I feel like the visual direction of the ruined Earth takes a lot of the District 9 feel of a gritty environment. The movie looks like it has a good story based on the trailer but it also teases us with a great scope in terms of the sets. Skyscrapers are shown with plant life growing all over these ruined buildings. I personally am not too excited to see Elysium but maybe this will be your cup of tea. Check out the trailer and see what you think.
Elysium stars Matt Damon and Jodie Foster set in the year of 2154. The wealthy live safely in a space station that is totally separated from the poor who are left on earth. Matt Damon plays the character determined to bring equality to the two.
