Trailer: Elysium

Written and directed by Neill Blomkamp, and starring Matt Damon, Jodie Foster, Sharlto Copley, Diego Luna, and William Fichtner. In theaters August 9th.

My only thought for this movie is if Blomkamp can again use science fiction as a vehicle to explore more pertinent issues like class-divide and wealth as he did with ‘District 9’ and racism. Time will tell, but hopefully this movie doesn’t let the blockbuster-iness of it outweigh the cultural critique.
