About Elysium In the year 2154, 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 (Matt 
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 (Jodie 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.  Written and directed by Neill 
Blomkamp.  The QED International / Alphacore Studios / Kinberg Genre 
production is produced by Bill Block, Neill Blomkamp, and Simon Kinberg.
