    Watch: Matt Damon Wakes Up In New Clip From 'Elysium' Plus Jodie Foster's Part Was Originally Written For A Man

    As the last piece of big, expensive blockbuster entertainment before the summer is out, hopes are riding high that Neill Blomkamp's "Elysium" can deliver something of a bang to go out on, as the season thus far has been fairly disappointing. "District 9" proved that the director could marry brains a...

    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 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 la...

    Neill Blomkamp Has Written An 18-Page Treatment For 'District 10,' Turned Down Chance To Work On New 'Star Wars'

    Most directors would kill to have the kind of support (personally backed by Peter Jackson) and success ($210 million worldwide, Best Picture nomination) Neill Blomkamp did on this feature debut, "District 9." And some filmmakers might have felt pressured to keep Hollywood in their favor, and undoubt...

    Franchise Compromise Sucks: Neill Blomkamp On Why He Wouldn't Do 'Star Trek' Or Any Other Franchise

    Franchises and "edgy" visions just don't mix. See Darren Aronofsky's takes on "The Wolverine" or "Batman: Year One" (pre-Christopher Nolan takes), Joe Carnahan and "Daredevil," Joss Whedon's "Wonder Woman," etc. Studios are generally looking for something within the comfort zone of a property.

    Watch: Matt Damon Has 5 Days To Live In New Trailer For 'Elysium'

    Is "Elysium" the last blockbuster worth looking forward to this summer? The verdict is in on "The Lone Ranger" and it's not good, "Pacific Rim" is still a very big question mark and "The Wolverine" at this point looks only marginally better than 'Origins' at best.

    Neill Blomkamp Personally Chose The Products Placed In 'Elysium,' Explains Why He Selected Certain Companies

    The discussion around product-placement has increased in recent weeks, mostly thanks to "The Internship" which some have called "Google: The Movie." Some of that talk has been a bit overblown, as Vince Vaughn and co. actually approached the company to ask if they could use them, preferring to use a ...

    Watch: New 3-Minute Trailer For Neill Blomkamp's 'Elysium' Starring Matt Damon & Jodie Foster

    The battle to keep surprises in store for an audience versus the need for mass marketing a major tentpole can be a tricky balance, but so far this year it seems studios are wising up. "Iron Man 3" and "Man Of Steel" both had extensive campaigns, yet kept big twists and plot developments under firm l...
