Sony's TriStar Pictures has debuted the first trailer for District 9 filmmaker Neill Blomkamp's new sci-fi thriller, Elysium, starring Matt Damon, Jodie Foster, Sharlto Copley, Alice Braga, Diego Luna, William Fichtner and Wagner Moura. Opening in theaters on August 9, the film is described as follows:

In the year 2154, 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 planet. The people of Earth are desperate to escape the crime and poverty that is now rampant throughout the land. The only man with the chance to bring equality to these worlds is Max (Matt Damon), an ordinary guy in desperate need to get to Elysium. With his life hanging in the balance, he reluctantly takes on a dangerous mission one that pits him against Elysium's Secretary Delacourt (Jodie Foster) and her hard-line forces but if he succeeds, he could save not only his own life, but millions of people on Earth as well.
