Matt Damon Talks About Elysium

Matt Damon plays one of the 99% of humans who live in poverty on planet Earth while the elite 1% live in luxury on a floating space station in the sci-fi thriller Elysium. And in this interview courtesy of Sony Pictures, Damon talks about the appeal of the film, why he was so excited about working with director Neill Blomkamp, what his co-star Sharlto Copley’s like on the set, and what audiences are going to get out of Elysium.
The Plot:
In the year 2154, two classes of people exist: the very wealthy, who live on a pristine man-made space station called Elysium, and the rest, who live on an overpopulated, ruined planet. The people of Earth are desperate to escape the crime and poverty that is now rampant throughout the land. The only man with the chance to bring equality to these worlds is Max (Damon), an ordinary guy in desperate need to get to Elysium. With his life hanging in the balance, he reluctantly takes on a dangerous mission – one that pits him against Elysium’s Secretary Delacourt (Foster) and her hard-line forces – but if he succeeds, he could save not only his own life, but millions of people on Earth as well.
