The 2009 feature District 9, following the tale of a stranded alien ship in Johannesburg, South Africa, rose to surprising critical and commercial acclaim, making its mark despite competing against summer blockbusters in American theatres, and making co-writer and director Neill Blomkamp and start Sharlto Copley names to look out for. Despite the film’s success, however, Blomkamp has remained relatively low-key, working on another script. Titled Elysium, Blomkamp takes on sole writing and directing duties this time, reuniting with Sharlto Copley, who’s joined onscreen by Matt Damon, Jodie Foster, William Fichtner, Alice Braga, and Diego Luna. The first trailer for the feature has now been released, and can be seen below.
