New behind-the-scenes photos from Neill Blomkamp’s upcoming sci-fi thriller Elysium are now online, courtesy of Jodie Foster fan twitter account Simply Jodie (via Bleeding Cool). As you can see below, these three images offer a good look at what to expect from the August 9 release.
Also starring Matt Damon, Sharlto Copley, Alice Braga, Diego Luna, Wagner Moura and William Fichtner, the film 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 Rhodes (Foster), a hard line government official will stop at nothing to enforce anti-immigration laws and preserve the luxurious lifestyle of the citizens of Elysium. That doesn’t stop the people of Earth from trying to get in, by any means they can. When unlucky Max (Damon) is backed into a corner, he agrees to take on a daunting mission that if successful will not only save his life, but could bring equality to these polarized worlds.
