Watch: Kruger Comes Out In New Clip, TV Spot & 2 Featurettes For Neill Blomkamp’s ‘Elysium’

Watch: Kruger Comes Out In New Clip, TV Spot & 2 Featurettes For Neill Blomkamp's 'Elysium'

Last month the drum was banging pretty hard in some quarters for everyone to show support for Guillermo Del Toro‘s “Pacific Rim,” as it was that increasingly rare beast; a summer movie not based on a pre-existing property. But where is the nerd choir for Neill Blomkamp‘s “Elysium“? More inventive, enjoyable and accomplished than Del Toro’s smash fest, the movie is due in just a few days as the last blockbuster hurrah of the season. Granted, it doesn’t seem to be the formulaic slam dunk of Del Toro’s movie so perhaps that’s why the enthusiasm is a bit more muted, but Sony‘s marketing team is hoping to rally the troops.

However, be warned, because watching everything below will spoil much of the movie. Perhaps taking a page out of the Fox playbook, these new promos rip pretty key moments out of “Elysium” and throws them into various clips and featurettes, including a good chunk of the climax. So again, you’ve been duly warned that watching the below could spoil everything before you see the flick this weekend. Instead, you read our spoiler-free review which enthuses that it’s “entertaining, thrilling and memorable.”

“Elysium” opens on August 9th. Watch below (if you dare).
