With Neill Blomkamp‘s equally ambitious and mysterious “Elysium” pushed from a March release to the end of the summer, we’ve had to make do with what little those around the movie are letting us know. We’ve already recieved a handful of Matt Damon images, and a look at Sharlto Copley as the villain and now comes some fresh images of Jodie Foster in the movie.
Granted, these aren’t official stills (they look like test shots if anything), but they are a least a barometer of what the actress will look like in the final movie. Set in 2159, the story follows a man who takes on a daunting mission in a world where the very wealthy live on the pristine, man-made space station called Elysium, and fights to keep the citizens of Earth from illegally immigrating. Foster plays Secretary Delacourt, who is deteremind to keep the status quo on Elyisum.
Co-starring William Fichtner, Alice Braga, Diego Luna and Wagner Moura, “Elyisum” opens on August 9th (and despite some reports, the movie is not being renamed “Baha Dunes” — at least not for North America). [via ONTD]
