Neill Blomkamp’s follow up to District 9 got a new trailer revealing much more about the mysterious Elysium.

Matt Damon stars in the sci-fi epic about the division of Earth’s population between an almost uninhabitable planet and the space station utopia taken straight out of Halo.

Jodie Foster appears to be playing the villain of the piece.

Blomkamp’s first film, the 2009 sci-fi hit District 9, went on to get a Best Picture nomination. That film tackles racial issues with startling precision. Elysium is said to be going after class warfare, along with health care and immigration.

The film hits theaters August 9. Check out the new trailer below!
