A new trailer has been released for ‘Elysium,’ Neill Blomkamp’s follow-up to his well-received debut feature District 9. Set in the year 2145, the movie follows a number of wealthy Earthlings who have relocated to a paradise space station named Elysium, where there is no poverty, no war, no sickness and strict immigration measures in place.

However, after an unexpected turn of events that leave tough guy Max (played by Matt Damon) fighting for his life, he agrees to attempt a risky scheme to save himself. Blomkamp earned plenty of acclaim for District 9, and Elysium appears to fall into similar territory. According to the Los Angeles Times, the director showed off 10 minutes of footage from the film to journalists in Hollywood on Monday, with Damon (participating via video-link) saying he “could not pass up the chance” to work with Blomkamp because he’d admired District 9 so much. That movie was nominated for Best Picture at the Oscars for its story of an extra-terrestrial race forced to live in slim-like conditions in South Africa.

Similarly, Elysium was shot in grim conditions in the poor outskirts of Mexico City. It opens in the US on August 9, 2013.
