Elysium (2013)(click on the title for my full review)

Sci-Fi lovers rejoice.  Elysium is coming.

Elysium takes place in the year 2154.  The rich live on a space station and the poor live on Earth, but the Earth is in shambles.  The rich are trying to protect their way of life, but the poor want in.

With an estimated $100,000,000 budget, the filmmakers are banking on Matt Damon and Jodie Foster to make Elysium a monster summer blockbuster.

It is written and directed by Neill Blomkamp who is most known for directing District 9 (2009).

The movie also stars William Fichtner, Jose Pablo Cantillo, Alice Braga, Diego Luna, Michael Shanks, Sharlto Copley, Talisa Soto, Ona Grauer, Terry Chen, Wagner Moura, Johnny Cicco, and Faran Tahir.

The film looks like it will be rich with special effects and action.  This one looks like a must-see.

The movie is set to release on 8/9/13.
