Following the release of the poster Monday (April 9), the first trailer for “Elysium” has arrived and promises futuristic war. The movie is set in the year 2159, with the world separated into two classes. The very wealthy live on a space station called Elysium, while everyone else lived on a ruined and rotting planet Earth.
Matt Damon’s character, who lives on Earth, needs to get on board Elysium to access their medical care, and in trying to do so may tear down the barrier between the two classes. First, though, he has to get suited up in all kinds of mechanical parts and fight robots. Once the mayor of Elysium (Jodie Foster) realizes what he’s trying to do, she’ll stop at nothing to make sure he fails. 
“Elysium,” directed by Neill Blomkamp (“District 9”), lands in theaters August 9.
