In Elysium, it’s ‘bling-bang.’
Now that most of summer’s films have already come and disappointed, there are only a handful more that still have me embonered, chief among them Niell Blomkamp’s Elysium (see also: The World’s End), which hits August 9th. After the jump, we have a new clip in which MATT DAAAMON and his Mad Max future-dystopia buddies in metal suits blast one of rich guy William Fichtner’s killer droids into slow-motion smithereens. Hope you had robot insurance, dude.
2013 is really shaping up to be The Year William Fichtner Broke, and I couldn’t be happier about it. Also, I wouldn’t mind seeing an action-scene-directing contest between Niell Blomkamp and Kathryn Bigelow, because damn.
In the year 2159, two classes of people exist: the very wealthy, who live on a pristine man-made space station called Elysium, and the rest, who live on an overpopulated, ruined Earth. Secretary Delacourt (Jodie Foster) will stop at nothing to preserve the luxurious lifestyle of the citizens of Elysium – but that doesn’t stop the people of Earth from trying to get in by any means they can. Max (Matt Damon) agrees to take on a life-threatening mission, one that could bring equality to these polarized worlds.
The only thing that could’ve made this clip better was if Matt Damon had shouted “WHAT’D YOU FACKIN SAY ABOUT THE SAWX, CAWKSUCKAH?!” before pulling the trigger.
In a world… in which the rich have all moved to Elysium, abandoning the Earth to a society of pissed-off Massholes…
