Director Neill Blomkamp’s follow up to Best Picture nominee District 9, gets a trailer.

In the world of Elysium, 2154 to be exact, human society has been divided into two classes, the privileged ones who live on the space station eutopia that the film is named for, and Earth, where the rest live (looks like more political commentary for Blomkamp).

Matt Damon stars as Max, the man who may be able to bring the two worlds together.

Jodie Foster seems to be pretty high up in power on the Elysium station.

The trailer has a very similar look to District 9, in that it almost looks like a war documentary.

This is certainly a film that once the superheroes put their capes away this summer, people will flock to.

District 9 was one of the best reviewed films of 2009, going on to receive four Oscar nominations. Since then Blomkamp has only worked on Elysium.

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