New Elysium Trailer: High-Tech Dystopia Never Looked So Good

It feels like we’ve been waiting ages for the release of Neill Blomkamp’s latest movie, Elysium. In this new trailer, we’re given a more in-depth look at what’s to come when the film comes out on August 15: sublime space habitats, an earth sliding into chaos and Matt Damon making robot jokes.

We’ve known that the movie borrows heavily from space habitat concepts from the 1960s and ’70s (our overview of the references is here), but it’s still exciting to see the rotating luxury ship up close.
