Here's a cool new photo from Neill Blomkamp's highly anticipated sci-fi film Elysium featuring Matt Damon all decked out in his futuristic military gear. We got to see some footage from the film at this year's Comic-Con, and it looked so freakin' awesome! You can read our panel coverage for that here, which includes all kinds of details. This is Blomkamp's follow-up film to District 9, and it looks like it could be even better.

In the year 2159, 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 Earth. Secretary Rhodes (Jodie Foster), a hard line government official, will stop at nothing to enforce anti-immigration laws and preserve the luxurious lifestyle of the citizens of Elysium. That doesn’t stop the people of Earth from trying to get in, by any means they can. »
