Elysium news from Comic-Con
I posted a while back about a science fiction movie called Elysium. There has been footage shown at Comic-Con and a picture released. The movie stars Matt Demon as a worker at a robot factory in a dystopian future. Orbiting the Earth is a place where all the wealthy people live and the station is called Elysium. Demon’s character develops cancer and has a short time to live unless he can get up to Elysium for good medical care and healing. This is a story about the 99% vs the 1%.
Here is a repeat of the synopsis I posted a while back.
In the year 2159 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 (Jodie Foster), a hard the 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 (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.
The movie comes out March 2013.
