Matt Damon stars in new trailer for Elysium: watch now

"In four days time you will die…"

Elysium has released a new full-length trailer, in which Matt Damon attempts to gain access to the ultra-privileged space-station after which the film is named.

The movie is set in 2159, where Earth's population is split in two. The poor majority live on the ruined husk of the planet itself, while the privileged few live in the lap of luxury aboard Elysium.

Damon plays Max, a member of the former group who is forced to find a way to break into Elysium in order to save himself, and the lives of millions of his fellow Earth-dwellers.

Take a look at the new trailer, below…

Looks rather spectacular doesn't it? We'd have liked to have seen a little more of Jodie Foster's ruthless security chief, but when it comes to charisma and general action chops, Matt Damon is the total package.

Directed by Neill Blomkamp and co-starring Alice Braga, Diego Luna and Sharlto Copley, Elysium will open in the US on 9 August 2013, with a UK date to be confirmed.

What do you think of the new trailer? Tell us, below!

      I haven't watched it yet as luckily i usually scroll through the comments section before doing do. And it looks like it was a good job i did, going by what's been said above. Do you think Hollywood are now starting to spoil things a bit? Having just watched Man of Steel, i've realised that pretty much everything was shown across the extensive trailers/tv spots that were on. I remember not seeing anything for district 9 and going in to watch it solely on TF's review recommendation, and being totally blown away by it. I know there's the arguement that if you don't want to see it, don't watch it, but they don't make that easy when it's being blasted around on dozens of different formats. I wish they'd go back to the old way of just teasing a film, rather than showing the whole plot in a 2 minute trailer

      People really need to stop b******g about trailers, just watch the first trailer and then avoid the rest.
