Matt Damon Aims To Change The World In Explosive First Trailer For Elysium
It says a lot about how incredible District 9 was that we're as excited as we are for writer/director Neill Blomkamp's Elysium. The young filmmaker's debut feature was an absolutely stunning mix of blockbuster action, brilliant visual effects, and impressive political parable that launched him on to just about everybody's "must watch filmmakers" lists.

Jodie Foster's Elysium Villain Revealed In New Photos
Having seen a glimpse of Foster in the Comic Con footage they showed last summer, that is indeed her look-- though of course these on-set snaps, perhaps for the hair and makeup department, don't really capture the intensity of the character on film. I interviewed Foster at Comic Con as well

We reported back at San Diego Comic-Con that Copley’s character was a scene-stealing bad-ass. His task is to hunt down Damon’s character, who is trying to gain access to an elite community that exists off our planet, in the outer atmosphere of Earth.

Neill Blomkamp's Elysium is one of those films that it feels like we've been waiting for forever. The South African filmmaker's follow-up to his phenomenal 2009 hit District 9, the project has been in development since summer 2010 and geared up pre-production in January 2011, but we are still waiting for the movie to actually come out.

RoboCop, Elysium, And Cloudy 2: Revenge Of The Leftovers Shift Around The Release Schedule
Two of the biggest sci-fi movies of 2013 are having their release schedules messed with. Sony has decided to make a few adjustments to their calendar next year and have even gone as far as to boot one of their biggest films off of it. The trade has learned that Elysium, the new movie from District 9 director Neill Blomkamp starring Matt Damon and Jodie Foster, has shifted from March 1, 2013 to August 9, 2013 and have taken RoboCop and moved it to February 7, 2014.

Over at the Hard Rock Hotel, also adjacent to the convention center, a mysterious spaceship seems to have crash landed-- a spaceship with ties to Matt Damon, District 9 director Neill Blomkamp, and their new movie Elysium. Take a look at it below, and note that it's made by luxury car manufacturer Bugatti, of all things

Matt Damon Wields A Very Cool Gun In First Image From Elysium
Set in the not-too-distant future, the film sees the popuation of the world split in two economically. The very wealthy all live in a posh space station (called Elysium) while everyone else is left on the rotting Earth. Obviously, the lower classes don't exactly enjoy the enforced lifestyle and they call on a man named Max (Damon) too lead their revolution. Unfortunately for him, standing in their way is Secretary Rhodes...

Synopsis Revealed For Neill Blomkamp's Elysium
Remembering the alien spacecraft hovering over Johannesburg in District 9, and the sharp division between aliens and humans that served as a metaphor for apartheid, and we seem to be back in very similar thematic territory-- which could wind up being a good thing if Blomkamp also manages to expand on them

Find Out Why Matt Damon Badmouthed Bourne Screenwriter Tony Gilroy, Then Apologized
We’ve known for quite some time that a fourth Bourne movie is happening, and that Matt Damon isn’t in it. Instead, actor Jeremy Renner (Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol) will be taking over the franchise in The Bourne Ultimatum as a new protagonist, with series screenwriter Tony Gilroy now also directing. Up until now, however, it has sounded like these changes were all cordial and mutual. Based on some comments Matt Damon made, however, that may not entirely be the case.

Diego Luna To Play Matt Damon's Best Friend In Neill Blomkamp's Elysium
When Neill Blomkamp made District 9 in 2009, his lead actor was Sharlto Copley, a friend whose only previous experience acting was in Blomkamp's short film, Alive in Joburg, which ended up the inspiration for the feature. With his sophomore effort, however, Blomkamp is taking full advantage of what comes with having your first film be nominated for Best Picture at the Oscars.

Alice Braga Joins Neill Blomkamp's Super-Secret Elysium
Braga and Moura are both Brazilian-born actors, which has me wondering if that will play into the plot somehow, but it seems just as plausible that Blomkamp wants a diverse, international cast. Braga is no stranger to sci-fi, having starred in I Am Legend

Jodie Foster Will Rule An Alien Planet In Elysium
We don't know much at all about Elysium so far, which makes this little tidbit of news all the more interesting. Foster is part of a cast that also includes Matt Damon, District 9 star Sharlto Copley and stalwart character actor William Fichtner

William Fichtner Joins The Cast Of Neill Blomkamp's Elysium
While Drive Angry 3D certainly wasn't the best film ever made, I do wish more people had seen it. Why? Because William Fichtner is amazing. Known to way too many people as "the bank manager from The Dark Knight," Fichtner is one our best character actors and always manages to put on a great performance.

Blomkamp's Elysium Finds A Release Date
Never the one to be worried about a quick paycheck, Blomkamp is taking his time with this one, as there will be a four year gap between District 9 and Elysium. He has to prove that he’s not just a one hit wonder so it’s nice to see him taking great care with this one and not just pushing it out the door.
