Elysium, Aug. 9
This futuristic sci-fi film finds Matt Damon playing a man embarking on a dangerous mission, while the wealthy live on a state-of-the-art space station. With the poor stuck on Earth with no hope of gaining access to the good times above, Damon's character is the only one who can bring these two groups together. This is the second feature from writer-director Neill Blomkamp (District 9
), and it looks like his artfully inserted political undertones make their return just in time for the summer.
