Watch: First Clip From Neill Blomkamp's 'Elysium' Plus New Pics, Posters & Featurettes

So, is “Elysium” the last blockbuster of the summer worth looking forward to? It’s the certainly the only one left this writer kinda cares about in any real way, and though Neill Blomkamp tends to keep the curtain closed on his movies until the last moment. It looks like Sony is getting ready for the last push in hopes to ride out the summer on a high.

The first clip from “Elysium” has arrived and it’s pretty nifty little taste at the comic side of the movie. In it we see Matt Damon‘s ex-con try and reason with a robot after a misunderstanding finds his parole getting extended once again. It’s a pretty sardonic little scene, one that suggests this future world won’t be without its bureaucratic absurdities. Meanwhile, the rush of Comic-Con over the weekend has seen a couple of Mondo posters, an official one sheet, and a handful of featurettes all worm their way online.

Check them all about below.”Elysium” arrives on August 9th.

Wasn't anticipating the humor. Nice touch. The first photo is pretty badass.

I'm torn whether I love the bald tatted Damon in Elysium or the blond bedazzled Damon in Candelabra better. Decisions, decisions….


Love the mondo poster and the close-up poster. Matt Damon can save me any day!


Looks awesome.
