First Photos from ‘Elysium’ Show Off a Buff Matt Damon [Updated with New Trailer]
Matt Damon has done action movies. Although he’s known for his role in the Bourne franchise, he has appeared in Saving Private Ryan, The Departed, and the Ocean’s trilogy. However, he’s never looked quite like he does in Neill Blomkamp’s (District 9) upcoming sci-fi action film Elysium. If you haven’t seen the trailer yet, check it out here.
Last week, eight new stills surfaced of the upcoming pic. It’ll release August 9, 2013, and is one of the most anticipated movies of the year (I know I say that a lot, but it’s certainly true).

Elysium is about a dystopian Earth mainland ridden with crime, poverty, and cancer with a space station-like perfect metropolis in the skies above. Max De Costa (Damon) makes it his mission to infiltrate Elysium (the metropolis) to cure his terminal cancer. It also stars Jodie Foster and Sharlto Copley (District 9).
Check out the photos below!
