Matt Damon Wakes Up Augmented in New Elysium Clip

IGN has revealed a new clip from the upcoming Neill Blomkamp film Elysium, featuring star Matt Damon after a rather painful procedure. Check it out below and take a look at the other clips for the film by clicking here or here.

Also starring Jodie Foster, Sharlto Copley, Alice Braga, Diego Luna, William Fichtner and Wagner Moura, Elysium takes place in the year 2154, wherein 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 planet. The people of Earth are desperate to escape the crime and poverty that is now rampant throughout the land. The only man with the chance to bring equality to these worlds is Max (Damon), an ordinary guy in desperate need to get to Elysium. With his life hanging in the balance, he reluctantly takes on a dangerous mission – one that pits him against Elysium’s Secretary Delacourt (Foster) and her hard-line forces – but if he succeeds, he could save not only his own life, but millions of people on Earth as well.

Elysium arrives in conventional theaters and in IMAX August 9.
