Neill Blomkamp’s Elysium Moved Up a Week


We know you were already making plans for March of 2013, so be sure to include a note in your schedule that District 9 helmer Neill Blomkamp’s Elysium will now open a week earlier on March 1st. It had been scheduled to open on March 8th, but earlier this week, Disney announced that Sam Raimi’s Oz, the Great and Powerful would be released on that date as well.

Starring Sharlto Copley, Matt Damon, Jodie Foster and Wagner Moura, Sony’s Elysium is set in the far future on another planet and is filled with many sociopolitical ideas wrapped up inside a Hollywood action film.
