Bald Damon Fights the Samurai Sword of Inequality in New 'Elysium' Trailer
The year is 2154, and holy shit Matt Damon is dying, in District 9 director Neill Blomkamp's latest, Elysium.
In a bizarre future where American humans still have manufacturing jobs, a job-related injury leaves bald Damon with only five days to live. There is a way to save him, but since his robot bosses are real pricks about worker's comp, it means he'll have to sneak his way onto the titular space station, a paradise where the rich elite live among little pods that heal you somehow.
Since he's already headed that way, Damon's going to take someone's sick kid too, and while he's there, he figures he might as well also bring about social equality for the entirety of humanity somehow. Of course, it won't be easy. Elysium's Jodie Foster doesn't want any bald Damons in her blunt commentary on class disparity, so she's going to fight him off with her best man: Kruger, this bionic homeless guy with a sword. Whatever works, and whoever works for cheap wine, right?
