It’s 2154, and a new caste system is in place. Earth is populated by the have-nots, while the privileged live in a veritable utopia aboard a massive spaceship. Earth-bound ne’er-do-well Max Da Costa (Matt Damon) gets some souped-up surgery and invades the ship monitored by Secretary of Defense Delacourt (Jodie Foster). Much battling ensues. Elysium is the second feature from writer-director Neill Blomkamp, who scored an Adapted Screenplay Oscar nom for his 2009 debut, District 9. Sharlto Copley, Alice Braga, Diego Luna, Wagner Moura and Faran Tahir co-star in the sci-fi actioner produced by Blomkamp, Bill Block and Simon Kinberg. Sue Bader-Powell exec produces. Check out the extended second trailer for the pic from Media Rights Capital and TriStar Pictures, which Sony releases August 9:
