Second Elysium trailer shows Matt Damon action

Matt Damon became an unexpected action star with the Jason Bourne movies, but has never tried to follow that success up with anything substantial. Elysium looks to change all that.

Not only does the sci-fi flick feature Damon running and fighting for his life, but it unites the superstar with writer/director Neill Blomkamp, who burst onto the scene four years ago with the brilliant -- and surprisingly deep -- District 9.

What does this mean for moviegoers? The closest thing to a blockbuster with the brains that we're likely to see this year. And one that will bring the boom, as the below trailer promises.


Set in the year 2154, where the very wealthy live on a man-made space station while the rest of the population resides on a ruined Earth, a man takes on a mission that could bring equality to the polarized worlds. 

Elysium also stars Jodie Foster, William Fichtner and Sharlto Copley. It hits theatres Aug. 9.
