Written and directed by District 9's Neill Blomkamp, Elysium finds the planet's wealthiest citizens on a manmade space station where there's no poverty, illness or war, while those on terra firma are left to deal with rampant crime and poverty.

When one man (Damon) attempts to infiltrate the orbiting luxury station to form equality between these two worlds, an anti-immigration official (Foster) is determined to stop him at all costs.

Elysium skyrockets into theaters August 9.
