Sharlto Copley burst onto the scene in Neill Blomkamp‘s District 9 and afterward was cast in Joe Carnahan‘s The A-Team and will soon be seen in SebastiÃ¡n Cordero‘s Europa Report, Spike Lee‘s Oldboy and opposite Angelina Jolie in Maleficent. However, wedged in among those films will be Blomkamp’s second feature film, Elyisum, in which Copley stars as the film’s villain Kruger and Empire brings us the first official look at Copley in the role directly below.
Elysium is set to hit theaters on August 9 and is set in the year 2159, where 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 Delacourt (Jodie Foster) will stop at nothing to preserve the luxurious lifestyle of the citizens of Elysium â€“ but that doesnâ€™t stop the people of Earth from trying to get in by any means they can. Max (Matt Damon) agrees to take on a life-threatening mission, one that could bring equality to these polarized worlds.
