Matt Damon and Jodie Foster Fight for the Future in 'Elysium': VIDEO

Now the full trailer has arrived. Check it out, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. This sort of reminds me of a story by George Saunders in his collection Pastoralia. Seem to remember it involved donuts and the floating elite. Very nice story also about a male stripper and his ghost aunt.

  2. Looks amazing. Needs to have closed captioning...can't understand the whispering...

  3. Looks good. Matt Damon as a bad ass is good, as Liberace's bad bottom not so much.

  5. I have to agree with AriesMatt, I might actually go see something where the dialog can be heard.

  9. This looks right up my alley.

  10. Well, at least it's not "Oblivion" or "AfterEarth" or "Pacific Rim," none of which interest me and all of which look like variations on the same movie. At least this has got a little class discussion, just as "District 9" was at heart a dissection of a new kind of apartheid.

  11. Looks okay; I will wait until it gets to the dollar houses such as the Laurelhurst or the Bagdad in Portland, Oregon.

  12. "Not so much" is a phrase that can induce vomiting. I love Matt in "Candelabra". Jodie's new hair is great. Dollar house movie theaters suggest Portland is not for me.

  13. Jodie's new movie? I'm afraid to watch it just because I don't want her to get another life achievement award that warrants a non-coming-out coming-out speech and she'll blame it on me, again.

  14. For me sci fi is at its most powerful when it speaks to contemporary social and cultural issues. The ideas in this aren't new, but coming from the director of District 9, it looks really interesting.

  15. Reminds me a little of The Island, in a good way.

    Will definitely take a trip up to Seattle to see this properly, way stoned.

  16. So, they turned Matt Damon into a Borg and Jodie Foster into a elfin muppet.
    The movie should be hilarious just with those two facts.

  17. Oh give it a rest Alfred. She came out so get over it you whiny little b*tch.
