Check out this first official photo from Neill Blomkamp’s (District 9) upcoming sci fi action movie Elysium starring Matt Damon.  I’m a big fan of District 9 and looking forward to this. Judging from the pic and the plot summary below it looks to have a similar look and tone as Blomkamp’s debut movie.

Here is the official synopsis of the movie:

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 line government of?cial, 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.
