Blomkamp’s "Elysium" Is Class-Warfare… With Mecha-Suits

Hooooooly shit.

First trailer for Neil “I Almost Wasted All This Talent On The ‘Halo’ Movie” Blomkamp’s follow-up to the magnificient “District 9” has hit, and it kicks ass. It’s another socially-conscious scifi actioner, this time casting Matt Damon as the point-man (leader?) of a team from poverty-ravaged 2159 Earth who use strength-augmenting mechanical exo-skeletons to launch an incursion against the titular Elysium, an orbiting space-station where humanity’s wealthy elite have walled themselves off from the rest of us (and, from the look of things, have no shortage of robot soldiers working to keep said rest of us out.)

Yeah, this looks good…
