“District 9″ ranks as one of my favorite sci-fi films. If you haven’t seen it, I suggest you go do so immediately. The film was directed and co-writter by Neill Blomkamp, who will soon release “Elysium” starring Matt Damon and Jodie Foster.
It looks to be an epic tale that appears to pit a crime ridden world against a utopian environment that floats in Earth’s orbit. According to Wikipedia, Matt Damon’s character, Max Da Costa, is assigned a mission that requires him to invade Elysium and bring equality to the impoverished, ill stricken world that hangs below. In a “District 9″ like move, his character will be outfitted with an outer skeletal robot suit that supposedly must be infused into his bone structure. The payoff is unparalleled strength.
Elysium, which has seen a few delays and was set to release last month, will now make it to theaters on August 9th, 2013.
