I'll definitely give this a chance, especially after District 9.

I'll give it a chance for the District 9 association as stated above but also to see the futuristic Bugatti at 1:59.

Didn't really give a reason for him attacking Elysium other than envy. Maybe I missed that bit?

Seems like you could substitute Elysium for USA and Earth for Africa/Middle East and maybe swap his super suit for a bomb suit then set it in this century.

Health reasons. He has cancer or some other serious illness. Not mentioned/shown in the trailer (unless I missed it).

Didn't they say something about him needing medical treatment?

Either way, I loved me some District 9 so I'm all over this. I think Neill Blomkamp is the next big thing in science fiction. Considering how original District 9 was, there is no reason to think Elysium will be generic crap.

This. And it's great to see new sci-fi content being made. It's high quality stuff. And like District 9, I think the trailer undersells the high points of the movie, which to be honest, is probably a good thing. Too many trailers nowadays pop their rocks and show all the good stuff. Or they over sell the movie and leave you severely disappointed. I'm confident Blomkamp can keep it going and think he'll be making some amazing movies for quite some time. I just hope he stays with sci fi!

Interesting that the themes mirror some of the ones we have here in the United States with healthcare being exceptional for the rich, cripplingly expensive for the middle class, and limited for the poor.

I know, all these great new sci-fi movies I want to see, and yet I have to put them all on the Netflix queue because I can't go to the theater with a 2 year old. Which means Hollywood won't understand that I want to support these films.

Guys, please see all these new sci-fi movies this in theaters to make up for my absence.

I suppose we have JJ Abrams and Star Trek to thank for this renaissance.

I kind of miss the sci-fi that we used to have. I feel like sci-fi tends to try and wow with visuals now, instead of with ideas. District 9 had a very good story with great action. Brought up questions of morality, racism, etc.
I hope this is as thought provoking.

I thought District 9 was beyoind stupid, with its magic black goo that does eveyrthing without explaination or purpose (very similar to another recently terrible sci-fi flick!). It looked good and that was about it. Damon does put in some good will for me though, as he has a pretty good track record, but with it being penned by Blomkamp I am keeping my expectations low until he proves otherwise.

You should watch "In Time" (good movie that I nearly didn't watch because of Justin Timberlake being the lead - figured he would play a character I couldn't like, but this movie turned me around about him). Also, you don't see the morality of different standards of healthcare based on income as a major theme in Elysium?
