A very impressive looking trailer has hit the web of the upcoming sci-fi film Elysium.

Directed by Neil Blomkamp and starring Matt Damon, Jodie Foster and Sharlto Copley, Elysium looks set to be another thought provoking piece like Blomkamp’s first film, District 9.

Much like Neil Blomkamp’s debut feature, Elysium looks set to feature plenty of social commentary.

A poster has also been released:

District 9 was something of a cinematic powerhouse back in 2009 and as far as I’m concerned was the most accomplished science fiction film to be release that year (worth noting this was the same year Avatar came out).

So colour us excited for this one.

Elysium is due for release in the UK on 20th September 2013.
