Jodie Foster in Sci-Fi Flick 'Elysium': First Look


Twitpic user @simply_jodie has published the first photos of Jodie Foster on set in the upcoming sci-fi thriller Elysium.

Here's a description of the film, via ontd:

In the year 2159, two classes of people exist. The first are the very wealthy who live on Elysium, a pristine man-made space station similar in appearance to a Stanford torus built by the Armadyne Corporation. The rest live on an overpopulated, ruined Earth. Secretary Rhodes (Jodie Foster), a hard-nosed government official, will stop at nothing to enforce anti-immigration laws and preserve the luxurious lifestyle of the citizens of Elysium. That does not stop the people of Earth from trying to get in, by any means they can. When unlucky ex-con Max (Matt 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.

Two more shots, AFTER THE JUMP...

  2. I'm usually a big fan of blue-eyed blonds, but that shot is a bit spooky.

  3. Jodie might be quite good in this but Matt Damon is a bit on the try-hard side. His face reminds me of a sea urchin.

  4. She's serving Julia Gillard realness.

    The premise of the film seems particularly timely, esp if you live in Manhattan.

  5. @stephen lucas...Why don't you show us your face so we can see if you remind us of a sea urchin.

  7. Sounds a bit like that episode of the original 'Star Trek' series - "The Cloud Minders". :-)

  10. Looking at those pictures I simply cannot believe that she is a lesbian.

  11. No mention that this is writer/director Neill Blomkamp's follow-up to DISTRICT 9? That alone has me excited.

  12. Well, THIS certainly sounds like an on-the-nose future reality....

  13. This looks like a really cool movie.

  14. What RONTEX and ED said. Can't wait.

  15. "Hard nosed" is right" -- that picture!

    Sounds really interesting. Loved District 9 -- which surprised the viewer every inch of the way -- no cliches!

    And say what you will, Jodie's a great actress.

  16. huh... and Mel Gibson isn't the president.

    (eh, someone had to inject Mel somewhere in this... But eh, maybe George Takei will make a cameo too to balance things out.)

  17. the premise is exciting, and will no doubt prove to be far more relevant than any of us want.

  18. cannot wait ! I love anything Jodie Foster is in.

  19. From REGINALD:
    "Looking at those pictures I simply cannot believe that she is a lesbian."

    Um, Reggie, how exactly should Jodi -look- in order that your teeny tiny brain would believe she is a lesbian?

    I'm sure we all can agree here that everyone is happy that you clearly do "look gay".

    Or are you just baiting us Princess Tiny Meat?

  20. Oh Dear,Reginald,it seems some people have left their GSOH at home today doesn't it!!
