Full trailer lands for Neill Blomkamp's Elysium

Matt Damon and Sharlto Copley star in the new film from Distict 9's Neill Blomkamp, Elysium. And here's the new trailer...

IMPORTANT: THIS IS A VERY SPOILER-Y TRAILER. WE'D HONESTLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU DON'T WATCH IT.

2154 doesn't look like a fun place to live, especially if you've got no cash. Planet Earth has been ravaged, and now it's home only for the poor and underprivileged. The rich? They get to live on the orbiting paradise that is Elysium. The two worlds are kept firmly apart, and the status quo is firmly set for the brand new film from District 9 director Neill Blomkamp.

As you might expect though, even before you set your eyes on this new trailer for the film, things don't quite go as they're supposed to. This full promo for Elysium that's just been released explains all of that just a little bit better than we could. The flip side is that this is a trailer that arguably overplays its hand, and tells you too much. Our advice would be to avoid the trailer, in truth, and wait for the film. This is one movie you're going to want to see on a very big screen.

And you've not got long to wait either. Elysium arrives in cinemas in August. It's long been one of our most anticipated films of 2013. Nothing we've seen so far has changed that.

More on Elysium in due course...
